Florida Program

Conserving Our Local Botanical Treasures

Fairchild's Florida Conservation Team maps, monitors, and researches plants and plant communities that are native to South Florida. Our collections include approximately 100 rare plant species native to South Florida and the Caribbean. Our program objective is to decrease the current rate of loss of tropical plants and habitats in selected high diversity areas through research and support to field conservation.

We have a diverse array of ongoing and completed projects that support the conservation of our local flora. We invite you to browse through examples of our work and learn more about local native plant conservation efforts:
