Please join the Mangrove Chapter, Florida Native Plant Society for a presentation on “Managing Wetland Areas in Our Communities”. Our guest speaker is Russ Hoffman, BA, MA, and trained Lake Manager, who manages Beautiful Ponds, providing all services pertaining to lake, pond, wetland and upland preserve care. Learn how selective removal of invasive exotics and use of native and other beneficial plants significantly increase biodiversity, improving wildlife habitat, bringing more birds, frogs and dragon flies. Other points of interest include algae and weed control, littoral zones, aquatic plants, water quality, erosion and biological plant control.

Our meetings, field trips and special events are free and open to the public.
