Nature Coast Chapter at the 2024 Florida State Fair
A Message from our Chapter President
From the first, I saw this chapter as both very active and organized. Our chapter is out in the community promoting native plants with plant sales and educational booths at local events all around the nature coast. We have an impressively large group of enthusiastic people who come to all our meetings and attend the field trips. And, no wonder everyone is so keen to attend, because our meetings and field trips are always interesting and informative. Plus, we are never short of volunteers for all the events that are planned.
As Molly Hays pointed out in her last message for 2023, there are a lot of key players that make this all work. So I'm hoping, with their support, and more importantly, with their guidance, I can fill the role of president and help our chapter keep moving forward as successfully as we have in the past.
