There's no better way to get a feel for Florida's native plants than to go on a field trip! In the past, many of the Naples Chapter's field trips were guided by Dr. George Wilder, botanist and curator of the Herbarium of Southwestern Florida at Naples Botanical Garden. We also enlist the help of many knowledgeable botanists who live in Collier County.
