Field trips are an important part of educational outreach. They promote the mission of FNPS in a manner no other activities can. Field trips get people out into natural communities where they learn how ecosystems function and begin to appreciate the beauty of the native plants that are our heritage in Florida. It's a fact that people must first learn to love what they will later choose to protect.
FNPS sponsors numerous field trips annually both through our chapters and at the annual conference. In total, we offer over 200 field trips annually, each with a knowlegable leader and enthusiastic participants.
The video below was produced for public education on Florida wildflowers and natural ecosystems at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. The wildflower walk was led by Craig Huegel and Rodger Hammer, FNPS members.
We recommend that you view this video on a device that is at least as wide as a tablet.
