Beverly Fleming, a founding member of Friends of Alpine Park, and retired St. Johns County Park Naturalist, passed away on May 23, 2016. Beverly spent many years educating schoolchildren and adults about native Florida plants and butterflies. She wrote and published many articles about nature in local newspapers.
Beverly was equally interested in history. Many of you will remember her as Granny B. She loved to dress in turn of the century period costume for her appearances at the annual Alpine Groves Park Bartram Bash and Old Settlers’ Reunion. Until her death, Beverly continued to serve on our Board as History Coordinator.
