At 7 pm, our speaker will present an informative and relative topic. Then, after a short business meeting, we will auction off native plants donated by our members.

DID YOU KNOW ...
Often, we will use native plants during our outreach events and classes. These plants are offered for sale at the end of the event. Why? Because native plants are not always easy to find and purchase. Therefore, we can get you started right away providing vital food and habitat to our local wildlife.
