Next Meetup

Native Plant Work Day at County Extension
Volunteers at the Native Area of the Florida Botanical Garden meet every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some people show at 9 a.m., some later. There are no set required hours you need to be there nor are there weeks you need to be there. *All* help is appreciated and jobs in the garden change weekly depending on projects tackled, which wildflower is needing to be deadheaded or which tree or pathway requires clearing. Come be a part of this beautification project and learn what native plants would be happy in your own garden! Please bring your own hand clippers, loppers, shovels, gloves, hat, sunscreen and water.

What we're about

Please join the Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society (http://pinellas.fnpschapters.org/) (FNPS) in pursuing the Society's mission: to promote the conservation, preservation, and restoration of Florida's native plants and native plant communities. We do this by sponsoring educational and informative speakers, field trips, workshops, plant sales, volunteer opportunities and other activities. Our hope is that we can inspire and inform others in our community to appreciate Florida's native plants and natural areas as much as we do. You will enjoy our Meetup group if you are interested in:

• Learning about Florida native plant species - wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, trees, vines

• Gardening with Florida native plants - landscape design, plant selection, establishment, maintenance

• Increasing biodiversity and supporting pollinators and other wildlife

• Conserving water and reducing pollution

• Understanding Florida ecosystems and how they function

• Enjoying Florida's great outdoors

Anyone may join our Meetup group and everyone is welcome at all Pinellas FNPS functions; you do not have to be an FNPS member. We hope that once you learn about FNPS, you will want to become an official member of our "green tribe" in order to support the Society's mission. More information about how to join FNPS may be found on the Society's website (http://fnps.org/participate/membershipinfo).
