Nominee: Greg Jubinski – FNPS Green Palmetto Service Award
Nominated by Kristina Serbesoff-King, Kathy O’Reilly-Doyle and Drew Leslie


Greg is very motivated; he is passionate about conservation –from his home life to his work life. He is the Program Leader, Upland Invasive Plant Management Program Division of Habitat and Species Conservation Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to wildlife and plant habitat in the State of Florida. Greg is at the helm of one of the most effective programs in the State, working to combat that problem. He not only thinks out of the box, he creates new and innovative approaches. Greg has no tolerance for wasting time or resources; as a result he is keenly focused on improving efficiency and effectiveness of his program. He has made a huge difference in the state of Florida planning and implementing the eradication of invasives which makes FL native ecosystems healthier.

Greg is the “go to” person state wide and his professionalism and reputation are well known. He has been a speaker at the FNPS conference on several occasions and is a long time member and provides the society with resources. He is a dedicated FNPS member who’s life and career embody and forward the mission of the Florida Native Plant Society.

“What drives a man like Greg to invest his professional and personal time and energy to restore and protect native habitat in the State of Florida? My guess is that he has a personal connection to the nature around him.” He has a stewardship ethic that fuels his leadership role in designing programs and leading the charge to make a measurable difference on the ground, and stay focused on the actions that truly matter.

Greg Jubinsky, is an enigma –he’s a conservationist extraordinaire.
