Do you see "our" BUTTERFLY ... among the Florida natural plantings?
PEAR = Palatlakaha Environmental & Agricultural
Off US27 south of Leesburg
(Lake County), FL
The PEAR Association was formed to protect an environmentally sensitive property from
commercial and residential development. It will encompass 318 acres when ongoing acquisition
Current PEAR projects include a 1.3 mile hiking trail, a dog park, 600 trees have
been planted around the park and a scrub jay/gopher tortoise habitat is under development.
The Butterfly Garden (50'x135'x50'x55') is a club project, working with the PEAR Association, an
Eagle Scout group and other local volunteers, using only plants native to Central Florida. A GFWC grant was applied
for and awarded in the amount of $49.11 and was received on 4/26/05.
Members have "worked" the Garden for two years ... the time appropriated by
the club for support. Now the PEAR Association will incorporate it into their total plan for the Park, and members will
continue to help with it as time allows.
