Get a Certificate in Native Plants


Discover the benefits of Florida native plants in this free, six-part webinar series from Palm Beach County Extension.  Webinars run from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm each Wednesday and Friday, starting on September 15 and September 17 and ending on September 29 and October 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 natives that will thrive on challenging sites, be it near the beach, at pond's edge, or in the shade.  Discover how to create native hedges, or increase security in a natural way.  Speaker: Laurie Albrecht, UF/IFAS Extension, Palm Beach County Environmental Horticulture Agent.

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 have received a voucher in the past 12 months are ineligible.  Some restrictions apply.
