How to Join or Renew Your Membership
The Montana Native Plant Society welcomes any and all individuals, families, and businesses and organizations who wish to join. Members are welcome to affiliate with any chapter or to choose to affiliate with the Eastern or Western-at-Large groups. Choosing a local chapter will expand your opportunities to participate actively in its programs and activities
You can join the Montana Native Plant Society or renew your membership online through our PayPal account or you can print and mail the attached membership form (pdf) along with a check or money order for your dues to:
P.O. Box 8783
Missoula, MT 59807-8783.
Membership in the MNPS runs March 1 through February 28th of the following year. Memberships processed before the end of October will expire the following February 28th; those processed after October 31, expire February 28th of the year after.
Memberships are processed on a quarterly basis so you may experience a slight delay in membership recognition and benefits. We appreciate your patience with our all volunteer organization.
YOU may be the sparkplug who organizes a local chapter where one does not now exist. Ten paid members are required for a chapter to be eligible for acceptance in the MNPS.
Need to change your membership contact information?
