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.
