ARKANSAS NATIVE PLANT SOCIETY
October 9-11, 2015
Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Be sure to mark your calendars for the Arkansas Native Plant Society fall meeting to be held October 9-11 in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Everybody is welcome to attend. Meeting registration is only $5 with no pre-registration required. Registration will begin at 5:00PM on Friday, October 9. The meeting site is the American Legion building located just north of Eureka Springs. From downtown, just travel north on Main Street (Highway 23) three miles past the train station. The American Legion is on the left just past the intersection of Highways 23 and 187.
The meeting will feature the always-popular native plant auction, where you can bid on many Arkansas native plants not readily available at your local nursery. Be there at 7:00PM Friday and ready to bid!
Several field trips to local areas of top botanical interest will be scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. We will offer something for everybody, whether you want to take it slow and easy or something more vigorous. You must sign up for field trips on Friday evening to allow for adequate logistical planning.
Saturday evening we will have a special program featuring presentations from several recipients of grants from ANPS made to individuals and groups for the purpose of enabling the study, promotion and establishment of native plants in Arkansas.
Some field trips will be repeated on Sunday morning to accommodate those who could not work them into their schedule for Saturday.
