Welcome to the Pinellas Chapter

With over 200 members, the Pinellas Chapter is one of the state's largest and has activities year-round: monthly meetings and field trips, twice-a-year plant sales, annual landscape tour, and occasional volunteer work days.

At its monthly meetings Pinellas Chapter members gather to hear an entertaining and informative speaker on a topic related to Florida native plants. Membership meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at Moccasin Lake Nature Park in Clearwater, and begin at 7pm. Please join us! In addition to the program you will enjoy fellowship and light refreshments, a silent auction of native plants, a "seed swap," and a roundup of compelling local environmental issues and upcoming events.

Monthly field trips are usually (but not always) held the Saturday following the membership meeting.

The public is welcome to participate in all Pinellas Chapter activities. Consult our program calendar for upcoming speakers, directions and maps.

Carpooling to meetings and field trips is encouraged. If you would like to share a ride with someone, please email Jan Allyn with your contact information and location.

Chapter board meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on the 4th Tuesday of each month (location varies). Email pinellas@fnpschapters.org or use the contact information for officers and board members below:
