Wellington Garden Club To Host Talk On Florida Wildlife

Kirsten Hines

Wellington Garden Club will meet on Monday, Nov. 6 at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.). The meeting will feature a presentation on Florida wildlife at 10 a.m. by Kirsten Hines, an acclaimed nature photographer, devoted conservationist and a true force for environmental preservation.

Armed with a master’s degree in biology and a background in environmental education, Hines skillfully intertwines her passion for nature and history in six captivating books on Florida. Her work, featured in a wide variety of publications, illuminates her expertise on birds, wildlife, gardening, travel and photography, which she passionately shares through lectures and workshops.

Committed to restoring South Florida’s natural areas, she particularly focuses on re-greening the urban corridor. Hines’ dedication extends to her roles as a conservation associate of the Institute for Regional Conservation and a valued member of the boards of Audubon Florida and her local chapter, the Tropical Audubon Society. Her contributions leave a lasting impact on both nature enthusiasts and the environment.

The community is invited to join the club for coffee and a plant raffle beginning at 9:30 a.m. Visitors are asked to check in at the guest table. To RSVP, contact Carol Ralph at caroltaylorralph@gmail.com.
