All Field Trips and Events Cancelled through December 31, 2020

June 28, 2020

To all ANPS Members:

Most regrettably, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation the ANPS Board has voted to cancel the Fall meeting slated for Stuttgart Sept. 18-20.

Scheduled field trips are also cancelled until Dec. 31, 2020.

We’re all quite sad that we have to miss another meeting with our native plant friends, but hopefully, come time for the spring meeting maybe we’ll all be pumped-up with Covid—19 antibodies from our Covid-19 vaccinations!  How we’re hoping.

And other news is that the two students who had applied for the Delzie Demaree Research Grants were both approved by the membership, so hooray for them and we’re very proud of these students.

Other emails will be coming to you periodically, so know that we’re not signing off at all for the the next six months for there’s always something going on with ANPS, and you’re the biggest part of it!

Thanks for your understanding, and let’s all continue to remain vigilant.

Susan Hardin and Becky Hardin

Co-presidents, ANPS
