The 9 Principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping (FFL) can help protect our water, create beautiful neighborhoods, and support awesome wildlife!
The FFL Program is all about:
- putting the “right plants” in the “right place”
- giving them the right care at the right time
- attracting & protecting beneficial wildlife
- reducing runoff & keeping water clean
- creating vibrant, resilient landscapes
Let’s have some fun!
Here at the Pasco County FFL Program, we’ve created a fun, printable FFL scavenger hunt. To get started, click the link below to download the activity page. Then look around your home and neighborhood! How many of the scavenger hunt items can you find?
