Major Website Upgrade

As of December 1st we have completed a major upgrade to our website by implementing a new membership program.  Each CoNPS member now has a membership profile on this site which can be accessed by the "Member Login" button on the main menu.  Instructions on how to sign in can be found there. 

Once a member has logged in they can update their profile, renew their membership, sign up for committees and go to "Calendar of Events" or "Current Events" to sign up and pay for workshops, seminars and meetings which may have a registration fee.  Members get discounted prices for these paid events.

A listing of all CoNPS events including field trips, workshops, seminars, chapter meetings, conservation projects and the annual conference can be found in the "Event Calendar" and "Current Events" buttons on the main menu, chapter pages and on the "Workshop" , "Field Trip" and "Conservation Project" buttons under the "Learn" tab on the main menu.  The events are listed there with descriptions, times and locations with interactive maps to the location.  If there is a registration charge, payments can be made on that page.

For Native Plant Gardeners

Visit our Native Plant Gardening page for great tips about how to get those native plant critters to grow and thrive in our hot, dry environment.  You can also find it under Resources on our main menu above.
