Fairchild’s Connect to Protect Network is a citizen science program that engages South Florida residents to plant native plants in their homes in order to connect the few remaining isolated fragments of pine rockland—our globally critically imperiled ecosystem.
Installing native plants increases the probability that bees, butterflies and birds can find and transport seeds and pollen across developed areas that separate pine rockland fragments, improving gene flow and the prospects for survival of our region’s unique native plant heritage.
Your contribution allows local citizens and volunteers to reintroduce the highly threatened pine rockland habitat throughout South Florida. More than 1,500 households participate!
