Members Night Slideshow: Plant Adventures in a Pandemic
Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 7 PM – 9 PM, Virtual - on Zoom
In this annual tradition, Chapter members share photos of notable plants and places they have visited in 2020. This was a unique year -- the pandemic and travel restrictions made our wildflower forays more challenging and precious. Whether you captured a spring wildflower display or photographed native plants in your favorite spots later on in the year, please consider showing your images and/or stories with others at this fun event. Even if you don’t have any photos to share, join us for a midwinter celebration of the beauty and tenacity of native plants and their habitats. THIS YEAR WE ARE MEETING VIRTUALLY ON ZOOM.
How to attend: Via Zoom
(preregistration required). The Zoom link takes you to a meeting registration form at Zoom’s website.
