South Sound: Holiday Celebrations and Member Presentations - Tacoma

South Sound
December 13, 2017 7:00PM - 9:00PM


Chapter members involved in native plant activities and projects are invited to informally present what they have done or are working on. Presentations can include pictures, slides or other materials and can be as informal as simply speaking about your work. We request that speakers limit their presentations/talks to no more than ten minutes. In addition to these member presentations, we hope to have trip leaders present brief overviews of the trips they have led.

Beverages and door prizes will be provided. Bring your favorite hors d’oeuvre to share.

"Knowing Your Grasses" is critical to many fields of science and practice, including wetland identification and delineation, ecosystem restoration, erosion control, and interpretation of natural history. Beautiful and diverse, grasses are globally important in many ways. WNPS proudly partners with  the UW Herbarium at the Burke Museum to offer this grass identification workshop.
