Since I was a young girl, I have always had a love of the outdoors and nature's beauty. My parents gave me a little square of a garden to be my own garden patch when I was young and I was hooked on gardening-especially gardening for butterflies. As an adult, I realize the responsibility we have to be good stewards of our environment. I am concerned about the declining population of pollinators and other insects and I'd like to help slow their demise.
I started NABA Tampa Bay, a regional chapter of the North American Butterfly Association, in June of 2018 as a way to help educate people about the importance of butterflies in our environment. Join us to help conserve our butterfly population through education and gardening activities. NABA members are a wonderful group of people and I encourage you to come to a meeting, event or field trip to learn more. It is fun and easy to learn about our Florida butterflies and the simplest and most rewarding gardening you will ever do.
