Message from Susan Rounds, President
The soft snow falling outside the window reminds me winter has arrived. It is one of my favorite times of year with The Idaho Native Plant Society because of the chance to attend evening presentations about our native plants and the insect/animal communities associated with them. It is lovely to come in from the snow to see pictures of wildflowers in the sun. Sharing that with friends makes it even warmer.
Spring and summer will come in their turn, and the activity will continue.
We are a community of individuals united by a desire to learn more about our native flora. The members come from a wide array of backgrounds and interest levels. Yes, some of our members know Latin and are highly trained Botanists. There is also a high level of acceptance and appreciation for those who have other backgrounds. The only requirement is an interest in native Plants.
Attending Native Plant Society meetings supports hope for the future. There are places where the wildflowers still bloom, and people who care deeply that they do.
Here's to hope and expanding the potential for our native grasses, forbs, shrubs, trees and the fauna they support.
Please come join us!
Thank you, Susan Rounds, President, White Pine Chapter of INPS
