The 2014 Annual Meeting
Fire and Ice
Was held June 27 - 29, 2014
At Luccock Park Camp in the Paradise Valley
Dual Floral Mascots: Silky Phacelia and Glacier Lily
Near Pine Creek
Hosted by Valley of Flowers Chapter
130 hardy souls - including more than 40 first-time participants - gathered at Luccock Park above the Paradise Valley June 27-29, to celebrate the 2014 MNPS annual meeting and take advantage of this year’s stunning late-spring bloom. Friday afternoon, three workshops drew nearly 50 participants. On Saturday, ten field trips took to the hills. Some featured exciting contests with ankle-deep mud; others repulsed onslaughts of hail; others dodged lightning. Thrilling creek crossings and brutal bushwhacks faced some participants. Remarkably, no one was lost, and all returned to Luccock with enthusiasm for drinking hot beverages and buying T-shirts. The plant ID contest, guest speaker, kids’ activities, cool raffle prizes and Sunday morning forays rounded out a very successful annual meeting.
The Flathead Chapter will host the 2015 Meeting on June 26 - 28, 2015
