EventMangrove Chapter FNPS Meeting
PlaceLemon Bay Park
Address570 Bay Park Blvd.
DetailsFebruary 13 Meeting, Mangrove Chapter FNPS  Kate Borduas “The Role of Cooperation in Evolution” Kate came to us from Maine, part-time, in 2003, and has been in the area, now full-time, since 2012. In Maine, Kate was involved in local and regional politics, where she worked as an environmental activist. She has served as the President of the Greater Portland, Maine Council of Governments.   Kate is an active member in local, regional and national Audubon organizations. She led the Venice Golf and Country Club (VGCC) Audubon International Bio-blitz team to winning two back-to-back global biodiversity challenges. The Bio-blitz is a species-counting competition designed to create awareness among golfers and the general public about the environmental value of the habitats supported by golf courses. As a Florida Master Naturalist and Certified Interpretive Guide, she leads birding and wildflower walks throughout Charlotte and Sarasota County. She is an active member in both the Mangrove Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society and the Peace River Butterfly Society. Kate says she is still trying to get back to Maine, but with her schedule as it is, I think we can count on her being around Southwest Florida for awhile.  This year, our February meeting comes just a day before Denny Girard’s birthday. With a birthday on the 14th of February and his outstanding contributions to the knowledge, identification, and preservation of the natural world of the Gulf coast of Southwest Florida, Denny has always been our Special Valentine.  Denny is a long-time member of the Mangrove Chapter of FNPS and, along with Marianne Owen and Al Squires, one of the original Cedar Point Trail Guides. Denny built the early trails at Cedar Point Environmental Park in Englewood and a trail at Cedar Point is named after him and his late wife, Pat. Prior to the construction of the main building, he and Al Squires worked Security at the Park. Bobbi Rodgers, the current director at Cedar Point, says: “Denny was everything here.” Denny has been a SW Florida resident for more than 50 years and his nature photography is well known to area enthusiasts. He was a major contributor to the University of South Florida (USF) Flower Atlas, which includes all Southwest Florida flowers found in the wild, including garden escapees. The Atlas can be viewed on the USF website. Denny has published two collections of poetry, as well as stories and articles in local newspapers.  Please join us for a pleasant evening of birthday wishes, a slice or two of birthday cake, and Kate’s informative and thought-provoking presentation.   Mangrove Chapter meetings are held at Lemon Bay Park, 570 Bay Park Blvd. in Englewood, Florida with speakers beginning at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6 pm. We encourage Floridians and our winter visitors to learn more about the importance of Florida’s native plants and communities by becoming a member of the Mangrove Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society.
