We Look Forward to Seeing you Soon
In Person/Zoom Hybrid Meetings will be coming for the 2023-2024 program year. Meanwhile, we are eager to gather more in person and don't want to wait a whole year for that to happen. So this year, we’ve added a few more field trips (including Advocacy trips) and we’re introducing Seasonal Serenoa FNPS Coffee & Conversations. These new meet and greets will be an opportunity to connect beyond the screen. They are scheduled for: Nov. 12th, Feb. 11th, May 6th, & Aug. 6th at the Sarasota Audubon Nature Center picnic tables.
Look for the mug icon in the calendar lineup for more Coffee & Conversation details.
For details about the Advocacy Field Trips, look for the FNPS logo in the calendar events.
Monthly General Meetings
(DeSoto, Sarasota, Manatee, and Hardee Counties)
Our General Meetings are via Zoom at 7:00 pm 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. Zoom registration links for each meeting are provided on the Meeting & Trip Registration Page. Please register in advance.
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, so please register in advance to confirm your spot. Registration links are provided on the Meeting & Trip Registration Page. Details and Directions will be emailed to registrants as the trip date approaches. Please wear appropriate clothing, pack trail snacks, & bring water. If you registered but cannot attend or have further questions, please contact our Coordinator Rachel DesRosier at 478-213-9407 for more information.
