The Wynmoor Nature and Arts Club in Coconut Creek, Florida has two monthly activities from October to May. On the first Thursday of the month members gather for refreshments and listen to speakers on topics ranging from plants and animals to environmental issues and natural resources. Meetings are usually held at 9:00 a.m. in Ballroom C of the Clubhouse unless special audiovisual equipment is needed. Then members meet in the Lecture Hall. On the third Thursday of the month members take field trips where docents are usually available to inform us about their respective nature setting. Members meet at East Wing 4 for car pooling or Tract 1000 for buses to distant sites. Members are reminded of club activities by emails. Dues are $15 annually.
NEXT MEETINGS & FIELD TRIPS
On March 1st, our guest speaker will be Robin Reccasina, Operations Director at Sawgrass Nature Center, who will speak on our upcoming trip to the Nature Center in April. On March 15th members of the Nature and Arts Club will travel by coach bus to the Fruit and Spice Park, in Homestead, Florida, for our monthly field trip. This will be a docent led tram tour of the park followed by lunch at Cracker Barrel. Our April 5th breakfast program will be a nature and arts Trivia Game hosted by Bruce Bandler. On April 19th we will carpool to the Sawgrass Nature Center for a classroom lecture and tour about "Everglades Communities".

WYNMOOR PLANTS AND WILDLIFE
Because of Wynmoor's beautiful landscaping, the Nature Club members enjoy learning about Wynmoor's plants, wildlife, landscapes, and waterways. A special section of this website is devoted to these. Plants include trees, palms, succulents, and flowers. There are separate pages for each as well as for shade trees, flowering trees, fruit and nut trees, and evergreens. The wildlife section has separate pages for waterbirds and landbirds. The Annual Art and Craft Festival includes nature subjects. We have included samples from the 2011 and 2016 shows. An index is found on the Wynmoor link at the top.
The City of Coconut Creek and the counties of Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade offer a wide array of natural resources for members of the Nature Club to visit and enjoy as a group or individually. This website provides links to their respective websites. Begin by clicking Resources at the top of the page.
