Florida Native Plant Society 34th Annual Conference

On May 16th and 17th the Native Plant Society will be holding their 34th annual conference here at FGCU at the Cohen Center!

This event is all about growing native and will offer many exciting opportunities for the public as well as FGCU students and faculty. The event will bring environmentally-conscious people from the entire state, particularly from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry County communities.  

Artisans, native plant enthusiasts, environmental advocates, historians, and the conservation-minded will join representatives from natural and cultural resource agencies as well as allied industries like environmental services, landscape architecture and publishing.  Small businesses will have the opportunity to display their arts, crafts, and all manner of green industry wares.

This event as well as Walking with the Natives Day will be open to the public. There will also be a plant sale and FGCU nature trail hikes lead by FGCU students and student naturalists.
