What We Do

Due to COVID-19, the Sea Rocket Board voted to suspend General Meetings and Outreach commitments untill further notice. 

Meetings

Our members meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month except during the heat of summer (June to August) and December when we have a holiday party. Our meetings start at 7pm but come at 6:30 for refreshments and socializing. We meet in the nature center of the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary, 444 Columbia Blvd., Titusville, FL 32780. Phone: 321-264-5185

Monthly guest speakers give presentations on a variety of facinating topics relevant to the mission of the Sea Rocket Chapter. Please check out the Sea Rocket Calender page and the current Sea Rocket newsletter for program information.

All Sea Rocket meetings and activities are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Field Trips

We see some of the most beautiful habitats and preserves in our area, with unique and interesting plants (and animals), some of which are found nowhere else on earth!  Our hikes are lead by Dr. Paul Schmalzer, plant ecologist with the Kenedy Space Center and UCF. View upcoming field trip information on the Sea Rocket Calender page or in the current Sea Rocket newsletter.Our field trips to conservation lands in central Florida are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. 

Plant Sales

Sea Rocket Chapter volunteers have plant sales two times a year to help you acquire native plants for your own backyard or business since most garden centers specialize in widely cultivated, non-native ornimentals. All of the sales are attended by some of our master gardeners 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 garden. 

Events

We participate in several festivals throughout the year including Earthday, Harvest Fest, Pioneer Day, Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, and others. See our Calendar page and the current Sea Rocket newsletter for more info.

Volunteer

Volunteers are needed all the time to keep the Sea Rocket Chapter fulfilling its mission. If you think you'd like to be involved, but are new to native plants, no problem! We have many opportunities to learn and be a part of helping Florida save its vanishing flora and natural lands.

Volunteer opportunities exist for working in our native plant nursery, maintaining our gardens at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary, helping with events, doing outreach, working plant sales, helping with the newsletter, bringing refreshments to meetings and serving on our board of directors. Volunteering is a great chance to learn from the best, and meet and work with master gardeners, experts in botany, and people who care about the outdoors and conserving Florida's wild places.
