What We Do

Fueling flower power and feeding bees

Our work for native, natural Florida and its creatures, including the bees that feed us, depends on the generosity of our members, donors, volunteers and sponsors, and those who purchase the State Wildflower license plate.

Each time a plate is sold or renewed, $15 is donated to the Foundation. Since 2000, more than $4 million has been raised for wildflower education, planting and research across Florida.

Learn about how the forest service manages the scrub habitat and why they allow people to cut down trees there. Then we’ll caravan to the Christmas tree cutting site, where everyone with a permit will have the opportunity to pick out and cut down their very own fresh-from-Florida sand pine.
