We had a great time at the annual conference of the Florida Native Plant Society last weekend in Tallahassee! This year’s conference theme was “Born to Burn: Conservation, Preservation, and Restoration on Public and Private Land.” We displayed lots of UPF books on gardening, botany, and environmental history. Several UPF authors made it to the conference and signed copies of their books. We’ve got some photos from the weekend for you to enjoy!
