Nominee: Bobbi Rogers – FNPS Green Palmetto Service Award
Nominated by John Holyland, Al Squires and the Mangrove Chapter

When Bobbi Rodgers joined the Mangrove Chapter in 1997 she began a career of service that continues to this day. Her service has helped to transform this one time stagnant Chapter into the vibrant, growing Chapter it is today.

Bobbi was a new member when she accepted the position of President and served two terms (1998-2002). She followed this with service as Immediate Past President and Chapter Representative (2003-04). She then assumed responsibility for arranging our busy program of speakers as Program Chair (2003-06). When both the Publicity Chair and Conservation/Education Chair asked to be relieved of their duties, Bobbi relinquished her program duties and assumed these roles (2007-present) She has also authored an invasive plant booklet and produced a DVD on “Lemon Bay, Past, Present and Future”, both encouraging the use of native plants. Bobbi makes sure Mangrove Chapter activities are announced and reported in the press and maintains the Chapter web presence. Bobbi is the Resource Manager of Cedar Point Environmental Park and has offered this facility as the site of the Chapter’s Annual Plant Native Day and the planned Chapter Garden.

Whether serving as an officer or board member, manning a booth at an environmental event, producing informational materials or setting up chairs for a meeting, Bobbi has served as an example of a service orientated person for over a decade in the Mangrove Chapter. Please help us honor her record by presenting her with the Florida Native Plant Society Green Palmetto Award.
