Special Message From Keep Florida Beautiful

Native wildflowers keep Florida beautiful

Think about purchasing one of the 'state Wildflower' specialty license plates to show your support for yet another way to make Florida a beautiful place to live and visit. All revenues from the sales of these license plates go to the Florida Wildflower Foundation, Inc. and are used to establish native Florida Wildflower research programs, Wildflower educational programs, and Wildflower grant programs to municipal, county, and community-based groups in this state.
