Solstice Celebration


Tuesday, December 19, 2023 - 7:00pm




Cornell Botanic Gardens' Nevin Center, 124 Comstock Knoll Drive, Ithaca NO ZOOM FOR THIS MEETING!


The Finger Lakes Native Plant Society is hosting an in-person winter solstice event to bring a little mid-winter light into the lives of Finger Lakes plant lovers. In the spirit of the season, we’ll gather in a festively decorated space to share the company of plant-minded people. Since many of the decorations of the season are plants themselves, we’ll turn our attentions for a bit to a friendly competition to identify as many of the native plant decorations in the room as we possibly can. There will be door prizes! There will be good food!  There will be free seeds! There will be plenty of opportunities to converse with others about the many plant adventures we’ve had on the other sides of our Zoom screens since the pandemic.

Masks optional but encouraged.  ALL are welcomed.

Please bring a savory or sweet dish to pass with a native or naturalized plant ingredient. You can use foraged plant material or purchased items (berries, mushrooms, wild rice, etc.)
