Completed Field Trips

Chiappini Farm Nursery May 8, 2017

Come join us for a trip to the Chiappini Farm Nursery. A new destination for our chapter.

Plant List - contains links to pictures in Florida Plant Atlas.

This nursery is located in Hawthorne, Florida. It is about 1 ½ hours from us. The nursery is owned and operated by David Chiappini. There will be over 170 species of native trees, shrubs and plants.

Come on and join us for a fun morning with a ride thru some of Florida’s countryside.
They say there is a great seafood restaurant close by, which we will probably check out.

Check our calendar for a list of upcoming field trips.

If you want to know more about a trip, there are links at the bottom of the page to previous field trips.

We meet on on the right side of Big Cypress Recreation Center at 8:00 am. We form car pools from there. All participants are asked to sign a "Chapter Field Trip Waiver and Release Of Liability Form". A $5 donation for leader honorarium or FNPS scholarship fund is requested from each participant.  

Please bring water and wear closed toe shoes. Car pools make their own arrangements for lunch. Questions? Contact Georgette  at or 714-661-7868.

Further details will be posted here if there are any changes.

NOTE: All workshops and field trips are limited to paid FNPS members. Seats are limited. Sign-up sheets will be available at our regular meeting on the 4th Friday of the month (Meeting Dates). FNPS membership forms and dues are accepted at the meeting or you can join online at
