RECOMMENDATION:
Recommendation Concerning Conservation of Roadside Native Wildflowers - Commissioner Steven Barry, District 5

That the Board adopt the Resolution committing to the conservation of roadside native wildflowers in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation and adjoining property owners.
BACKGROUND:
Many naturally beautiful species of native wildflowers, including Coreopsis, the State wildflower, as depicted upon the State Wildflower license tag, are already prominently displayed along Escambia County's State and County roadways. Increasing the visibility of native wildflowers in Escambia County is consistent with the vision of the Comprehensive Plan and goals of many individuals, businesses and community-based organizations.  The presence of native wildflowers is essential to the fitness of native pollinator species necessary for productive and profitable farms and forests.
