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
SALE IS NOW CLOSED
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.
Grasses! These important native plants can be so hard to identify. Here's your chance to learn the easy way from Dr. Maggie Gaddis.
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!
