Upcoming Events

The DNPS typically has three or four events each year, plus a field outing when the opportunity arises. When an event is finalized, members will receive an email annoucement, and all the details will be posted right here, and on our Facebook page. Check back with us because we will update this page regularly.

2020 REFORESTATION PROJECTS
Please stayed tuned as we firm up details of these projects. We are very excited about them and will be posting information as soon as we can.

VOLUNTEER WORK DAY AT THE UD NATIVE PLANT GARDEN
We had a volunteer workday on 9 Nov 2019 at the UD College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment campus in Lewes, DE and completed phase 1 of establishing a pollinator garden. It was a great event and now we wait until Spring to see what pops up.

NATIVE PLANT SALE
It has come to our attention that there is some old information out there on the Internet about our annual plant sale. We no longer have an annual plant sale. But you know how the Internet is; once something makes it on there, it tends to persist like the basal rosette of a Polystichum acrostichoides through Winter! Sorry for the misinformation. But there are many other fantastic Spring sales throughout the region, and an Internet search will easily turn them up.
