The Valley of Flowers chapter is excited to host the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Montana Native Plant Society, titled Fire and Ice. The get-together will take place June 27-29, 2014, and will be headquartered at Luccock Park Camp on Pine Creek, above the beautiful Paradise Valley. The camp is 13 miles south of Livingston, 55 miles north of Mammoth, Wyoming. This venue gives us access to a spectacular diversity of plant communities, from those developed on low-elevation basalts to the alpine zone. The area is marked by classical glacial geology and has been impacted by wildfire several times in recent years, hence the theme of the meeting.

Field trips will focus on:


→plant community succession after wildfire
→mid-elevation grasslands
→the Gallatin Petrified Forest
→wild mushrooms
→wetlands and riparian vegetation
→alpine plants of the Absaroka, and other botanical topics
