Programs & Events

The chapter holds monthly programs on various topics related to integrating native plants into your landscaping. The chapter also sponsors and organizes a variety of other events throughout the year. These include volunteer opportunities and social events. For full details about all of the chapter’s events, view the programs and events listed below. The Volunteer page lists the various activities where we need help from members.

Programs & Events are free and open to the public (unless otherwise designated as a members-only program). At this time (due to Covid 19) our public programs in early 2022 will be held online via Zoom.  To register for a specific program, visit the individual program links below.
