We look forward to seeing you soon!

Monthly General Meetings

Our General Meetings are in-person and on Zoom at 7:00pm EST on the 3rd Monday of each month, September through May.  We first convene for a short business meeting followed by the evening's program.  After the presentation, the meeting concludes with a moderated Q&A session with the speaker.  The in-person meetings are held at the Selby Garden downtown campus (1534 Mound Street, Sarasota, FL 34236), and Zoom meeting registration links are provided below .  Please register in advance.

Field Trips

There's now something happening at least once a month.  Whether it's an educational tour, informal hike, or to advocate, Serenoa is getting out into the community.  Some trips have limited availability.  Register online in advance to confirm your spot.  Please wear appropriate clothing, pack trail snacks and bring water.  Details and directions will be emailed to registrants as the trip date approaches.
