Florida Native Plant Society


Dear Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you deeply for the $500 dollars’ worth of Florida native plants you contributed to the Universally Inclusive playground’s butterfly garden at Wesley Chapel District Park. Scented foliage and blooms will add to the sensory aspects of the garden. Seeing butterflies drinking nectar from the flowers and flying among the plants will delight watchers. Seeing caterpillars eating the leaves for food will fascinate observers. These Florida native plants will please and benefit all users of the playground, children and adults of all abilities, for years to come. Thank you for your generous contribution.

Katie Mac Millen,
