Welcome!

 
We're interested in everything about native plants in Broward: seeing them in the wild, learning their names, discovering rare species, and planting native plants from nurseries in home gardens, commercial landscapes, and public spaces. We work to conserve, preserve, and restore habitats for native plants in Broward. Protecting indigenous plants is essential to the protection of wild and migrating creatures who absolutely depend on particular native plants for food and reproduction. Native plants perform many essential functions for healthy ecosystems and a healthy environment for people, too. Explore and enjoy.

Read our eNews, attend speaker events, come on fieldtrips, be an advocate for plants and nature, or join the Florida Native Plants Society (FNPS) to support our work. There are many ways to participate. Find your niche (click here).
