- Monthly Meeting- Nature Coast Chapter: (public invited)

Tuesday, June 8, 2021

7PM- Land O' Lakes Community Center

5401 US 41/Land O' Lakes Blvd.,

Land O' Lakes, Florida

“Explore, Experience, Embrace Wild Florida”, presented by Linda Wilinski. We will take a photographic journey through Wild Florida to be inspired by its natural beauty, hear about its perils and learn how we can all make a difference.

Linda is a freelance photographer focused on the conservation of wild Florida. She is a certified Florida Master Naturalist, Springs Ambassador and attended Crealde' School of Art. She completed a year-long photo series at the Oakland Nature Preserve and her artwork has been exhibited throughout Florida, with an exhibit in Cedar Key in March of 2020. Linda's mission is to serve as the bridge between the audience and wild Florida. She will have some of her photographs for sale at the meeting.

Meetings of the Chapter are free, and all interested parties are invited to attend and bring questions about their yard. There will not be any refreshments or drinks available, so everyone needs to bring their own. Please wear a mask! Telephone inquiries are taken by Sandy at (727) 207-1853.
