There are many great clubs one can belong to, but only the most dedicated will drive two hours to visit a plant collection!

Over 40 members of the Palm Beach Palm and Cycad Society visited Montgomery Botanical Center for a lecture and tour of one of the world’s finest Palm and Cycad collections on May 14.

Montgomery Botanical Center cherishes collaborations with local, national, and international societies. To be able to share information on new science and discoveries with interested parties is a wonderful way to meet Montgomery’s education mission.

“It’s great to make friends with people who share our two main interests: Palms and Cycads,” said Executive Director Patrick Griffith.  “I was thrilled that so many dedicated people traveled from two counties away to see our collection.”
