Meetings and Field Trips

When the COVID-19 pandemic prevented our meetings from occuring in person, we began holding them online via Zoom. We have resumed our in-person meetings, but whenever possible we will also make our program available online as well. Instructions for joining the meeting virtually are in the events listing on the calendar page. Please visit the calendar page for up-to-date information for meeting topics and field trip locations. 

Join us at Our Monthly Meeting!

Learn, share plants, meet other plant enthusiasts, and enjoy refreshments. Meetings are free and open to the public.

At our monthly meetings, members gather to hear entertaining and informative speakers on topics related to Florida native plants*. Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at Moccasin Lake Nature Park in Clearwater, and begin at 6:30 p.m. In addition to the program you will enjoy a Mix-N-Mingle over light refreshments, silent auction of native plants, and a roundup of compelling local environmental issues and upcoming events. Books are available for sale and “how-to” literature is complimentary.

Contributions of native plants for the silent auction and refreshments are greatly appreciated!

Join us on Our Monthly Fieldtrip!

Monthly field trips to local nature preserves, state and county parks, public gardens and private sites are usually (but not always) held the Saturday following the membership meeting. Occasional overnight and weekend trips take us around the state to view seasonal blooms or unique plant communities. All trips are led by an expert in the field.

In addition to field trips, we offer “How-To” Workshops on a variety of native plant, landscaping and gardening topics and public or member-only Landscape Tours.
