Mangrove Chapter at Earth Day 2021

Mangrove Chapter at Earth Day

Mangrove Chapter hosted a table at the Earth Day event at Cedar Point Environmental Park in April, offering information on native plants, attracting birds, feeding butterflies and their caterpillars, and growing beautiful wildflowers. A guided hike attracted several walkers who explored the park. Chapter volunteers helped gardeners make selections from the stock of native plants grown and donated by chapter members, and although plant tables were full at the beginning, they were much emptier by the end of the day.

Earth Day 2021

Happy Earth Day!
One of our partners, Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center (CHEC) is celebrating with Earth Day Festivals Saturday, April 24 at both centers, Alligator Creek Preserve at 10941 Burnt Store Rd, Punta Gorda, FL and Cedar Point at 2300 Placida Road, Englewood, Fl.

Mangrove Chapter "Natural Awakenings" Interview

Natural Awakenings magazine interviewed Mangrove Chapter's Linda Manley about Native Plants. Linda and Lois Cantwell worked together to prepare for this, and the result is a great article.

Field Trips

As it is still not COVID-safe to have indoor membership meetings, we have stepped up our Field Trip schedule. We are hosting 3 or more field trips per month through April 2021. Capacity may be limited; see our Calendar for the schedule. Members are informed of upcoming field trips before the general public. If you are not a member, consider joining now!

Membership Survey

We value your thoughts about the future of our Chapter. We sent this short survey (only 5 questions) to members to let us know how we can serve our membership better. The survey is hosted by Google Forms so you can be assured that the information we collect will be completely anonymous.

If you haven't responded yet, please do; we expect to wrap up the survey and compile results on Jan 15.
