Free Native Plants Aug. 7

Your August opportunity to get a voucher for two free native trees or shrubs is almost here.

The Native Canopy Education Program is offering Palm Beach County residents another opportunity for an online voucher for two free native trees or shrubs in three-gallon containers.

If you missed earlier online voucher distributions, or hadn’t heard about them, here’s your chance to get a voucher. You’ll be able to choose any two plants from a list of 24 different native species, subject to availability. Vouchers can be redeemed at any of the participating nurseries.

The link to the application form will be live on Saturday, Aug. 7 from noon until supplies are exhausted. Palm Beach County residents can go to or search for “PBC Extension Native Canopy.” You will then watch the short educational video and complete the application form.

A voucher and supporting materials will be e-mailed to qualified applicants.

To qualify for a voucher, you must be a Palm Beach County resident whose household has not received a voucher from the Native Canopy Education Program within the past 12 months.
