2022 MNPS Annual Meeting – Ferns and Forests, June 24-26, 2022 …
…is being hosted by the Flathead Chapter and western Montana members at-large. That’s us! See the MNPS Annual Meeting Page and check back as we update details.
Hosting a meeting with our plant friends is always rewarding. We’ll need lots of volunteers, so watch your inbox for notices.
We regret that the rate of COVID transmission in Flathead County is still too high for us to safely hold in-person indoor meetings. We do have a few events in the works, but don’t yet have dates:
- Flathead Conservation District Goes Native: The FCD will share their exciting programs to promote and protect native plants and habitats including riparian restoration and native gardening. On Zoom. Date TBD.
- Identifying Woody Plants in winter using the Winter Field Key to the Winter Shrubs of Montana. Date and location TBD. We’ll wait for an opportune weather window.
- Conservation Gardening with Native Plants: Kathy Ross will give her delayed but anticipated program on gardening for birds and more with natives. This will be outside and as soon as the weather allows.
If you have an idea for a local program, for this winter or next, let us know!
The Statewide MNPS Presents! offerings have been outstanding. We hope you will take advantage of them. A schedule and links to past programs can be found at MNPS Presents! In addition, the MNPS Valley of Flowers YouTube Channel has archived programs from last year.
Thank you to Hailey Moore at the Center for Native Plants for arranging a fun mix of field trips last year. We are looking forward to getting back outside with you in 2022. Contact us if you would like to lead a field trip or have an idea for one.
