SFPS Member Distribution Meetup @ Matheson Hammock Park

February 20, 2021 (11:00 AM – 2 PM)

This socially distanced event will be geared towards encouraging SFPS members to bring any seeds, seedlings, or plants to contribute towards our raffles and auctions the day of the event. Please wear a mask and stay safely distanced from others attending. You are encouraged to bring a beach chair or towel to sit on and relax. 

Members can also bring plants they would like to distribute as well. No RSVP is needed, but if you’d like to send any details about what you are bringing, please send us any info prior to the event. 

The SFPS will not be catering food, but you can bring your own meal and water to consume on your own. Unfurtunately we do not encourage anyone bringing food items to share, as is usually done at our general meetings. Masks and social distance required to ensure the safety of all SFPS attendees.

If you would like to donate any plants but can’t attend the outing, please contact the SFPS to coordinate your donation. Please make sure all plants are properly identified, and if possible, tagged for the SFPS Distribution Report.

The SFPS wants to thank Montgomery Botanical Center which has donated a special surprise palm to be revealed the day of the event which will be raffled.

Use the shared FTBG entrance not the beach road directly across the Old Cutler Hiking Trail lot. – https://goo.gl/maps/5cmfxJfbqX8YJtYM7

“One of Miami-Dade’s most treasured county parks, Matheson Hammock Park, sits on a peninsula that extends into Biscayne Bay. The park spans 630 acres of coastal Miami just south of Coral Gables, surrounding parts of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. It first opened to the public in 1930, after William J. Matheson donated prime waterfront property to Miami-Dade County.” – https://www.miamiandbeaches.com/thing-to-do/parks-recreation/matheson-hammock-park/4704
