The June meeting will be a brainstorming meeting for members to give input on topics and speakers for upcoming bimonthly meetings, locations for potential field trips, MNPS advocacy efforts; hands-on invasive plant removals, and any other topics or activities you would like us to include. If you’ve ever had an idea for a meeting topic, thought “this would be a great place for an MNPS field trip,” or been in a location worthy of a group invasive plant removal – please join us for this meeting and tell us your ideas. We welcome your input to carry out the mission of MNPS – to promote awareness, appreciation, and conservation of Maryland's native plants and their habitats. Our Chapter includes MNPS members from Baltimore City and Baltimore, Harford, and Howard Counties. Not necessary to RSVP, but if you do, we'll send you an agenda.
