A Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society.
Members of Naples Native Plants enjoy sharing their passion for native plants. We volunteer for native landscaping consultations, plant sales, habitat restorations, and more! Join us today!
Naples Native Plants is a chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society. Our mission is to conserve and restore Collier County's native plant communities. Free native plant resources can be found on this website. We strive to collaborate with increasing numbers of community organizations for native plant landscaping, conservation, and education. Naples Native Plants is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Help us reach our goals by making a donation today!

Help us record when native plants bloom in Southwest Florida!
The Naples Chapter launched a citizen science project using iNaturalist in October to document native plants in bloom. Our goal is for project members to photograph as many flowering native plants as possible throughout the year and share their observations with other nature enthusiasts on iNaturalist. After the year is over, the Naples Chapter will present a "Bloom Color Chart" that visually displays which months of the year specific native plants bloom in Southwest Florida.
Every member of the Naples Chapter is eligible for a one-hour native landscaping consultation at their home. Fellow members volunteer to identify native plants that are present, identify any invasive plants to remove, and suggest additional native plants that could be added to the site.
Interested in a native landscaping consultation, but not yet a member? Join the Florida Native Plant Society here. Memberships start at $35/year (individual). Be sure to indicate that you are joining the Naples Chapter.
Community representatives are welcome to contact us to schedule a one-hour site visit. Please give at least one month's notice so we have time to include the volunteer opportunity in our monthly e-newsletter. We request that at least two members of the landscaping committee become members of the Naples Chapter.
Thank you for doing YOUR part to preserve, conserve, and restore native plants in Collier County!
