Lake Beautyberry Chapter

This chapter is proud to serve Lake County.

There is no chapter meeting in May, as it coincides with the FNPS Annual Conferernce in Crystal River.

The next regular meeting will be in July, on Sunday the 21st at 2 pm at Trout Lake Nature Center in Eustis.

The Lake Beautyberry Chapter meets on the third Sunday of every other month at the Trout Lake Nature Center, 520 E. County Road 44, Eustis. Schedule: 2:00 pm Social time and 2:30 Program & Meeting.

Directions: Take SR 19 north out of Eustis to the intersection with CR 44 East and turn right at Winn-Dixie and CVS Pharmacy, then go 1/4 mile to the nature center entrance on the right.

On months with no meeting we normally conduct a field trip in the area. 

Next Field Trip: Lake Beautyberry’s next field trip will be on Sunday, June 16th. Father's day - the destination is not yet set, so check back with us soon.

Visit our native plant garden in the multi-themed UF Discovery Gardens adjacent to the Lake County Extension Service Building in Tavares and PEAR Park, a Lake County park south of Leesburg.

We would love to hear your native plant stories, what is blooming and what native plant you would recommend for the garden.
