The South Sound Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society holds membership meetings with special presentations during the winter months and field trips during the summer months.
  Presentations are open to the public; workshops and field trips are reserved as a benefit to our members. Workshops may occur at any time of the year. The Chapter also enjoys collaborating with organizations and agencies promoting similar educational venues, so look for us at these events.

Additional activities can also be found occurring in Tacoma on a less frequent basis (please contact the Chapter Chair if you would like to participate in, or support the creation of more of these activities). We also hope you will contact us if you have particular topic or presenter interests. That is the best way that we can serve you. We hope you will not only join us but become a regular with all of our adventures. Your membership not only helps to make this happen but helps us keep the wheels of our programs turning.



“The mission of the Washington Native Plant Society is to
promote the appreciation and conservation of Washington’s native
plants and their habitats through study, education, and advocacy.”
