What we're about

Are you interested in learning about Florida's beautiful native plants?


This local group aims at bringing like-minded individuals of all ages and skill-levels together to explore and learn about native landscapes around Central Florida. In addition to monthly field trips, we also hold monthly meetings with speakers on a wide variety of topics that focus around a central theme- the importance of native plants.
