HPS/MAG 2021 Annual Meeting

Guest Speaker, Janet Novak "The Wild Place Next Door: Finding Wildflowers in the Mid-Atlantic" 

A Hybrid (In-Person & Virtual) Event

This year, we are happy to offer attendance at our Annual Meeting either in-person at Jenkins Arboretum or virtually via Zoom. 

Meeting Report: This years Annual Meeting was a wonderful success. Offering both in-person and virtual attendance options provided more availability to our members. We plan to continue to offer these options. Additionally, the meeting was recorded (including Janet's fabulous lecture), and all members were sent the recording. The meeting charts, presented by HPS/MAG President, are available on our website. Members must be signed into the website and the charts are located under Member Center/Publications/Program Slide Lists. 

No matter how you choose to attend, we will all enjoy an interesting and informative lecture filled with fabulous, creative ideas on using wildflowers entitled "The Wild Place Next Door: Finding Wildflowers in the Mid-Atlantic" presented by Janet Novak.

Per our HPS/MAG Bylaws, we will have a brief 30-minute business meeting that includes State of the Organization, Finances, Vote for 2022 Board Candidates, and Recognition Awards. Our speaker will follow. The meeting will conclude no later than 3:00 pm.

This is a Free Members-Only Event.
