   The Committee recommends that the Board approve the amount of $4800 to Thomas Greene for labor to remove competing species in wet prairie areas of the Point Washington State Forest.
   The Committee recommends that the St. Thomas University project be funded for $1900 if there are available funds. If funds are not available, then we recommend funding through other sources or possibly a special appeal to chapters and members.


There were no applications for the Dan Austin Ethnobotany award. This is the second year that no applications were received. We will need to contact the award sponsors and assess the merits of keeping this program going, or modifying it to attract more attention.

The Policy Committee report for this meeting is comprised of the attached Draft Overview of the 2024 Legislative Session, and a letter submitted to Governor DeSantis requesting a veto of Senate Bill 1645.  Please do not share the draft overview until it has been finalized.

This version includes revisions by Shirley for the mentor award, a clarification that the green palmetto awards are not for current board members, and the new category for emerging leaders under the age of 30 recognition that will be solely given digitally  :)
