Interested in helping out on the NCNPS Board?  We’re looking for a vice president, treasurer, and board-member-at-large.  If you think you have the skills and energy needed, please contact the current VP, John Clarke , .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)


SAVE THE DATE!  The Annual Membership Meeting and Picnic will be held at Hagen Stone Park on June 2nd of 2018.  This event is a great place to meet other society members, talk with some serious plant-geeks and of course buy native plants.  As your plants wake from their long winter nap, consider potting up some of the “extra” (not that you can have too many native plants) to bring to the annual plant sale and auction.  Remember to label your plants (common name and botanical name) and ensure if the plants are “listed” that you follow the documentation rules.  More information will be posted in the near future but don’t forget to mark your calendars.
