Eastern Montana Landscape with Native Flowers

30th Anniversary Annual Meeting

On The Edge” Lambert, Montana

June 2017

Was Hosted by Maka Flora Chapter

The Montana Native Plant Society celebrated 30 years of conserving, studying, and teaching about native plants at the 2017 annual meeting! Participants explored the plains, badlands, and hardwood draws of eastern Montana. Field trips visited diverse prairie, green ash/chokecherry, cottonwood, riparian, and wetland habitats. Dr. Kelly Kindscher, Ethnobotanist and Professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Kansas, spoke about native medicinal plants of the prairie and he will also led a field trip. Dr. Matt Lavin, Montana State University, led a field trip focusing on grass identification and ecology - his workshops have been very popular at past meetings. After field trips, participants tested their skills at the annual Wayne Phillips Plant ID Contest. Saturday night was the annual membership meeting, field trip slides, and stories. Committee meetings on Sunday morning rounded out our event.
