On Sunday, April 24, 2016, Preferred Materials was honored to be involved in the Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society’s First Annual Native Plant Tour. Preferred’s Odessa Concrete Plant was the first stop featured on a seven stop driving tour of native gardens in Southern Pasco County. In November 2015, Preferred earned the 2015 Wildlife at Work certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council for its eight-acre wildlife habitat site, where one acre is designated for a wildlife garden and outdoor learning space. The site’s pollinator garden hosts more than 75 different species of native plants. Many of the visitors were people who wanted to learn more about native plants and how they could help improve their landscapes and environment. The event was deemed a resounding success from all participants.
