The Pinellas Chapter can only be effective in carrying out the FNPS mission of preserving, con-serving, and restoring native plants and native plant communities with the help of its members and supporters. There are many ways that you can help!
Opportunities abound! Here are a few of the possibilities:
- Help staff a table at a local event, answering questions about native plants and distributing information
- Serve on a committee, helping with membership, volunteer coordination, communication with members, or organizing programs and field trips.
- Giving a talk at one of our meetings on a native plant-related topic about which you are knowledgeable, or leading a field trip to a natural area
- Becoming a member of our speaker’s bureau and giving short presentations to classrooms and community groups about native plants.
- Being a “native plant evangelist” by sharing plants and knowledge with interested family members, friends, and neighbors, and encouraging them to incorporate natives into their landscapes (and to get rid of invasives!).
