Florida Native Plant Society Coontie Chapter

Our Mission: To promote the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Broward County.

Conservation

All creatures depend on plants, and now all nature depends on us. Odd that humans, an intelligent species, have been so slow to realize their dependence on nature for air, water, and life itself.

Restoration

Join us in protecting nature and bringing our indigenous plants back to our cities in Broward County.
