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.
THE CoNPS NATIVE PLANT SALE PICK-UP DATE IS MOVING TO JUNE 26TH
The Denver pick-up remains at Chatfield Farms. The CO Springs remains the same. The Golden location still needs confirmation. We will post details as soon as we possibly can. 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. The sale will remain open until everything is sold! To order, go to: 2021 Spring Plant Sale - (conps.org).
Grasses! These important native plants can be so hard to identify. Here's your chance to learn the easy way from Dr. Maggie Gaddis.
