Cooperative Extension Certificate In Native Plants

Discover the benefits of Florida native plants in a free, six-part webinar series from the Palm Beach County Extension Service. Webinars run from noon to 1:30 p.m. each Wednesday and Friday, starting on Sept. 15 and Sept. 17 and ending on Sept. 29 and Oct. 1. Participate in just one webinar, or take all six and earn a signed certificate in native plants.

Learn about Florida’s indigenous palms and natives that stun with beautiful bark, fragrant flowers or fabulous fruits. Find out about the types of natives that will thrive on challenging sites, be it near the beach, at a pond’s edge or in the shade. Discover how to create native hedges, or increase security in a natural way. The speaker will be Laurie Albrecht, Palm Beach County environmental horticulture agent for the UF/IFAS Extension.

The first 25 eligible Palm Beach County residents to sign up for and attend each class will get a voucher for two free 3-gallon native plants; one voucher per household, per year. Residents who already have received a voucher within the past year are not eligible. Some restrictions apply.
