Can you help the Chapter to share the gift of growing natives?
October 6 , 2012 from 10-4 pm*
(*or until all plants are sold)
CNPS members will be allowed into the plant sale
for the first hour, from 9-10 am.
The Chapter’s Annual Native Plant Sale will be held in the backyard of the Three Rivers Arts Center. You will find an enclosed pre-order form, with a discount given to Chapter members. We do our best to fill the pre-orders, but sometimes plants are not available from the nurseries as the plant sale gets closer. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Volunteers are needed to help set up the plant sale on Friday, October 5 at 10 am. Cathy Capone and Melanie Keeley will be the leaders for this important task. Cathy will be arranging the plants and Melanie will be making sure all the ordered plants are on the truck from Intermountain Nursery. We will also have plants from Cathy’s nursery in Porterville, Cal Natives. We are so fortunate to have these two wonderful nurseries supplying us with locally grown native plants.
Janet Fanning will be in charge of all pre-orders and sales. Please call Janet, at 559-561-3461, for more information or to volunteer for the Native Plant Sale on Saturday. Please join us!
Read the details and dates for the Chapter’s field trips planned, so far, on this field trip calendar.
Call Joan Stewart, at 539-2717, to confirm details
about each field trip, like where to meet at 10 am.
Summer Field Trips at higher elevations will be planned for June and July, and will be featured in our next newsletter coming out in late May. An up-to-date field trip schedule will be posted on the this website as field trips are scheduled.
The Alta Peak Chapter usually has its Chapter Winter Program in February. But, due to family health issues from two prospective speakers, we have decided to postpone the meeting. A newsletter will be published later in February. Planning is in the works for a special field trip day to the Porterville native plant nursery run by Alta Peak Chapter Horitculture Chair, Cathy Capone. Details about this event will be posted on this website later, as well as printed in the newsletter.
The first Board Meeting of the year for the Alta Peak Chapter will be held on Saturday, January 15, 2011, at 1 pm at the home of Cathy Capone in Porterville. Call 559-361-9164 or email Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org for directions.
We hope that new, interested persons may open some time and space and join us. We will discuss the events coming up for 2011, our two Chapter programs, the annual native plant sale and the conservation issues of our county.
