 Marylou Baiata

     The Palm Coast Bird Sanctuary was created by Marylou Baiata, a consummate tree hugger and avid bird enthusiast.  She can be seen in the pictures with Teddy, perhaps her favorite bird. Mary Lou died July 25, 2014, less than a month after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  

​​​      Marylou was known by her friends and thousands of customers for her energy and radiance.  She was the founder and initial creative force of Nature Scapes, a 30-year-old landscaping and nursery business in a town with few businesses half that age.  Nature Scapes was the home of the sanctuary.  

     Marylou is remembered for her passion, strength, love of nature, an infectious smile, a talent to make everything grow, and her ability to turn an ordinary occasion into a vibrant party.  Marylou seized each day and lived life to the fullest.
