CoNPS Starts Search for New Executive Director
We Have a Winner in the Best First Flower to Bloom Contest!
Our winner is Lux Sterling and her wonderful photo entitled, "Pasque Flower, Daughter of the Wind"
Lux told us when she submitted her photo, "This was the first flower I found this spring! One of my absolute favorites, to greet as the seasons start to shift.
It has been an unseasonably cold spring and the growers have told us the plants for our sale are just not ready. To give them the time they need we have no choice but to move the sale forward.
SALE OPEN UNTIL JUNE 23rd Or UNTIL SOLD OUT
The pick-up locations remain unchanged. We realize this change is an inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we make every effort to bring you the size and quality of plants you expect. Thank you for your continued support of the Colorado Native Plant Society.

Maggie, president of our Southeast Chapter, has just added two fabulous new videos to our website, Grassland Ecology
and Grass ID. Maggie is an accomplished teacher with a relaxed style - you will be an expert before you know it!
