Why Native Plants
by Virginia Overstreet
Virginia will discuss the decline of natural habitats in Florida and the effects on birds, pollinators and other native wildlife. She will also discuss Florida native plants that homeowners can grow to support wildlife.
Virginia Overstreet is our Suncoast Chapter President. She loves native plants and the incredible diversity in wildlife they bring to home gardens. She has been a Florida Master Gardener Volunteer since 2001 and always encourages homeowners to avoid pesticides. She has been a Florida Certified Arborist since 2009 and encourages homeowners to prune trees properly to maintain health and proper structure, not for aesthetics alone. She has been a Florida Master Naturalist since 2018 and enjoys sharing information about Florida’s unique environments. Virginia enjoys camping and
hiking throughout Florida’s natural areas, but her favorite way to view Florida is from her kayak.
