April 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Teri Jabour Joins Board of Directors of the

Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden

(West Palm Beach, FL – April 17, 2013)  Polly Reed, President of the Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden, Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest public garden, today announced that avid gardener and environmentalist Teri Jabour of North Palm Beach has joined the nonprofit organization’s Board of Directors.

With a strong appreciation of Florida’s unique ecosystems, Ms. Jabour has been a longtime advocate on behalf of sustainability issues and natural resource protection.  She worked for several years at The Nature Conservancy’s Blowing Rocks Preserve on Jupiter Island, and later served as program coordinator at Grassy Waters Preserve and the City of West Palm Beach’s newly created Office of Sustainability.

A past president of the Atala Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA), Ms. Jabour remains active in butterfly conservation and butterfly gardening. In addition, as a member of the Board of Directors for the Florida Earth Foundation, she strongly supports education about Florida’s water resources, land conservation, and sustainable communities.

“Mounts Botanical Garden is like a second home to me,” says Ms. Jabour, who served as president of the Garden’s Friends between 2002-2004. “I’ve been a volunteer Master Gardener with the Palm Beach County Extension Service for 16 years, and I look forward to working again with the Mounts board as we continue to grow the garden.”
