We hope you’ll take some time from your holiday preparations to join us for our annual focus on you – the member.

Share some of your favorite photos of native plants—in the wild or in the garden, local or anywhere in the world. Bring ten to fifteen, or twenty if they’re spectacular. These could be a plant you’d like to have identified (no guarantees), one you’ve seen out of its known range, an interesting plant/bird/insect relationship, good field trip shots, just a lovely picture, or a slide that makes you laugh! We’ll have equipment for both the slide and digital formats. Digital photos can be brought on a flash drive, CD, or DVD. (Please let us know if you need special equipment.)

If you don’t have pictures you’d like to share, come and enjoy the variety and surprises. There will be new books and other items for last minute gifts.

New chapter t-shirts will be available!  Pick up your pre-orders, or just buy on site.

Your board and other members will be providing a festive spread on the hospitality table. If you would like to add a special cookie or two, feel free (and include the recipe)! Come join us for a light-hearted and relaxing evening.
