Plant Survey Opportunity

The Mangrove Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, in conjunction with Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center and Charlotte County, conducts monthly plant surveys at Cedar Point Environmental Park in Englewood, FL. These surveys record both blooming and seeding plant species along designated trails. These data provide land managers and educational professionals background for climate related projects and other important issues. Plus it is a fun and educational morning learning new plant species and meeting new people with similar interests!

The Chapter welcomes new people (membership in Chapter is nice but not necessary) to help with these surveys. We meet (usually) two mornings per month, from (usually) 9:00 AM to approximately 11:00 AM at Cedar Point Environmental Park, 2300 Placida Road, Englewood, FL. See below for upcoming dates. We look forward to meeting you! Contact us if interested!

More Coming soon
