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!

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.
All Naples Chapter gatherings are temporarily suspended as a precaution to reduce potential spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Our meetings are being held online until further notice. Chapter members and e-newsletter subscribers will receive registration links to attend the meetings live. Presentation recordings will be made available shortly after the meeting.
The Naples Chapter meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm, unless otherwise specified. No meetings will be held in July or January due to holidays.
