The Pocahontas Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society is hosting several field trips in September. The outings are free and open to the public, but there is a limit on the number who can attend. Anyone with an interest in the native landscape is welcome, from novice to expert.
On September 19 at 10 a.m. take a walk in R. Garland Dodd Park at Point of Rocks. This has become an annual excursion that allows for comparisons and documentation of the bloom times of different plants from year to year, but you don’t have to be an expert or have participated in previous years to learn, and enjoy. Contact Richard Moss at firstname.lastname@example.org or 748-2940 to register and get details on where to meet.
The Pocahontas Chapter is one of 13 Virginia Native Plant Society chapters. In addition to the monthly meetings, the chapter conducts field trips, holds a May picnic and wildflower walk, hosts the annual Virginia Native Plant Society Winter Workshop, and sends a monthly newsletter.
Membership in a chapter is available to anyone who joins the Virginia Native Plant Society. For more information visit the chapter and state websites: http://pocahontaschapter-vnps.org/ and http://vnps.org/
