Come See Us!

Florida Native Plant Society’s 39th Annual Conference

“Transitions”

May 16-19, 2019 at the Plantation on Crystal River

The 39th Annual Conference will offer an abundance of presentations and workshops:

  • Amazing speakers
  • 2 days of awesome field trips
  • Cutting-edge science
  • Current issues
  • Conservation, restoration and citizen science
  • Climate-change adaptation
  • Advocacy opportunities
  • Native plant vendors
  • Silent action

The FNPS’s theme this year “Transitions” is pertinent to the Nature Coast region of Florida in a number of ways – sea level rise, migrations of ecosystems due to climate change, and the transition zone between north and south Florida.  In this region you will also see the transition of cave system into Karst, spring flows to tannic flows, and water quality transitions.  The region also has a large diversity of plant communities and the transitions between uplands and wetlands are common, dramatic and highly visible – a great place to introduce people to Florida’s diverse natural communities.

Look for Laura & Diana at Heartwood’s vendor table.
