Historic Bayview Environmental Park

August 2, 2003

Historic Bayview Environmental Park

Among the more than 2,000 people that have made this park possible have been local park proponents such as Early McMullen Sorenson and Jack Alvord, and public servants such as former County Commissioner Charles Rainey, Florida State Senators Jack Latvala and Jim Sebesta along with Florida State Representative Kim Berfield. These Florida officials working with Douglas Hattaway at the Trust for Public Land secured a grant of nearly $1.7 million which was added to the $250,000 from Pinellas County and $250,000 from the City of Clearwater through favorable votes from both the County and City Commissions.

"Pinellasyard" wins Award!

Matthew King, Florida Native Plant Society, called to announce that our home, at 1332 Fairway Drive, Dunedin, had won Third Place Award, 2003 statewide Design With Natives Competition, Residential Non-professional Category, Florida Native Plant Society.

(We did not find the 2003 Awards yet on the FNPS website, at
However, we did find, under Institutional, Non-Professional, that the Pinellas County Parks Department had won an award in 2002 for Phillipe Park, Indian Mound.)

In working with the Chris Claus, Horticulturist, Florida Yards & Neighborhoods Program, Pinellas County Cooperative Extension Service, to create our "Certified Florida Yard", our family chose native plants to: reduce pesticide use; conserve water; lower water bills; restore wildlife habitat; beautify our yard and neighborhood; increase our understanding of natural Florida, and improve our property value.

We would like to acknowledge also the expertise and support of Westenberger Tree Service, Wilcox Nursery, and Beckett Lake Nursery.

We appreciate the Florida Yards Program.
