The mission of the Florida Native Plant Society is to promote the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Florida.
The Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society meets on the third Tuesday of every month. We are resuming our in person meetings at the IFAS / Mounts Botanical Garden Auditorium in West Palm Beach (531 N Military Trl, West Palm Beach, FL 33415). Doors open at 7pm. Our popular native plant drawing follows the speaker program -a great way to add hard to find natives to your landscape.
The Palm Beach County Chapter of the FNPS is hosting an ongoing monthly event that focuses on discovery and identification of south Florida native plants in their natural habitats. This is an opportunity for beginners and experienced members to learn and share knowledge. This monthly event will be limited to 12 members.
Enjoy the beauty of our natural areas as you botanize. Walks will be led by PBC Master Gardeners and FNPS members Julia Renninger and Helen Laurence.

Native Plant Demo Garden Meet and Prune
Our monthly garden maintenance meet up takes place on the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at our native plant demonstration garden located next to the Clayton Hutchinson building at Mounts Botanical Garden. To get there, take Military Trail to Golf Road and proceed to the rear entrance of MBG. We've arranged for the gate to be open so you will be able to park in the lot near the demo garden. Wear appropriate warm weather clothing and bring your pruning shears. Water will be provided. Don't forget to bring a to-go container for cuttings. This is a great opportunity to help keep our educational demo garden in shape and to collect cuttings for planting in your own native landscape!
