We do this through education, community outreach, volunteering, field trips, guest speakers, charitable giving, and supporting scientific research.

What We Do

Field Trips

We have field trips to visit the wonderful flora in our area, some of which can be found no where else on earth!  Our field trip leader is Dr. Paul Scmalzer, plant ecologist with the Kenedy Space Center and UCF. Check our Calendar page for upcoming hikes.

Plant Sales

We have plant sales throughout the year to help you acquire native plants for your own backyard or business.  All of the sales are attended by knowledgeable members who are happy to help answer any questions you may have or give you some guidance as to what natives may do well in your yard or garden. Check our Calendar page for upcoming sales.  Sea Rocket members are entitled to a special discount on their plant purchases at Sea Rocket plans sales.  Not a member?   Sign up the day of the sale and claim your discount!!! We now accept credit cards!  Our next plant sale is scheduled for June 4, 2022 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  It is anticipated this will be our last sale of the summer, but we plant to hold a fall sale some time in September.  Come early for the best selection!
