Native Plant Society Events

The Oklahoma Native Plant Society upcoming events -

August 27 - SW Chapter joint meeting  with OK Archeological Society
Bob Blasing will give a talk. The title is: "How Early Great Plains Tribes Used Seasonal Travel to Obtain Resources". The meeting is booked at the Museum of the Great Plains for Saturday August 27th, at 2:00 P.M. Refreshments will be provided.

September 1st - Central Chapter meeting at the OSU-OKC horticulture building at 7pm. Marilyn Stewart will give a talk on Weird and Wonderful Natives of Oklahoma. The owner of Wildthings Nursery, her full time + job and interest is in Oklahoma native plants. She is an expert in the field; her talk should be both informative and fun. Bring a friend and come join us.

September 11th - There will be a native grass outing/ field trip at the Martin Nature Park, 5000 W. Memorial, OKC on Sunday, September 11th at 2:30. Bill Bennett, a volunteer at Martin Park, has done these walks over the years. Fall is a great time to see the native grasses in bloom and seed; should be a great outing.

September 12 - The next formal meeting of the Northeast Chapter of ONPS will be Monday, September 12, 2016 at the Tulsa Garden Center, 2435 South Peoria Avenue at 6:30 in the basement. Our speaker will be Jay Pruett of The Nature Conservancy. Dessert will be served.

September 25 - Butterfly Garden Tour 
Take a tour of some notable native plant/butterfly gardens in OKC. Details to come, but save the date! Sunday September 25th, from 10 am to 3 pm, with Sunday October 2nd, same time, as the rain date. We selected this date to avoid the Zoo butterfly festival which is on the preceding day. Although the date is a Sunday, the tour is spread over a 5-hour period which will allow everyone to attend regardless of their Sunday schedule.

October 1 - Monarch in the Park, Blanchard, OK. Details to come.
