Native Plant Lovers: FLNPS members and beyond


Celebrate the Winter Solstice with the Finger Lakes Native Plant Society!

In the spirit of festive, in-person FLNPS solstice gatherings of pre-pandemic yore, the Finger Lakes Native Plant Society is hosting a virtual winter solstice event to bring a little mid-winter light into the lives of Finger Lakes plant lovers. Short presentations will include a visual tour of some botanical highlights of the past year, an introduction to a great new online flora of a favorite Finger Lakes park, a closer look at the gametophytes of maidenhair spleenwort, and so much more. There will even be chances to identify some winter mystery plants and win plant-related prizes. Registration required. Link will be above ASAP.
