Save the Date! The ANPS Fall Meeting will be held in Eureka Springs October 9-11, 2015.
This meeting is going to be very well attended because of location, time of year and the publicity around Eureka Springs we are going to receive. So get ready. It’s going to be a great time.
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, 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.
We have reserved 30 rooms at the Eureka Inn Best Western ($107.95 + tax per night including a full breakfast). There is a two night minimum stay. Reservations must be made before August 20th to guarantee room availability at this rate.
Don’t delay making your room reservations. October is prime season in Eureka Springs and lodging will be at a premium.
Eureka Inn Best Western: 101 East Van Buren Street (479)-253-9551.
Also, Lorna Trigg, owner of Fire om Earth botanical sanctuary, might also have a cabin available for a group of several people. Fire om Earth: 872 Mill Hollow Road (479)-244-6273
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.
Some field trips will be repeated on Sunday morning to accommodate those who could not work them into their schedule for Saturday.
The annual native plant auction on Friday night is an event not to be missed. It’s not too early to be thinking about and preparing the plants you want to contribute to the auction.
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.
