WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW BOARD MEMBERS The Board meets once a month, usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening in Markham. It's your opportunity to give back and do your bit for North America's native plants. You can work with like-minded people and help shape the future of NANPS. Board Members will be appointed at the AGM on October 20th. If you are interested, please contact volunteer@nanps.org .
