Organization News

Our Society has suffered a severe lost by the recent passing of two of our members -- Lois Brooks and Jack Schieber. As you read the remembrances by their friends in the Fall Newsletter, you will feel just how much the Society meant to them and how great their loss is to the Society.


In August the outreach team reached five new members at the Fall Hardy Plant Society Event. Welcome all.

Upcoming Meetings

The fall meeting will be at Morris Arboretum on Saturday, November 18 at 10 AM. The speaker will be announced. Michael Brooks is working on the field trip schedule and it should be scoped out by the meeting. Your suggestions for field trips would be welcomed. Send your suggestions to Janet Whitefield or Michael.


Removal of native plants from the wild is rarely a good idea as the entire community may be affected. Always vette your sources for native plants to insure sustainable collection practices are in place.

The purpose of the Delaware Valley Fern & Wildflower Society shall be to encourage the enjoyment of native Ferns and Wildflowers by cultivating and propagating them in the home and garden; by studying them in their wild habitats, gardens and conservatories; by promoting their conservation and preservation; and by providing a forum for the exchange of information and expertise.


Membership in the DVFWS is open to anyone who is interested in native ferns and wildflowers and is willing to support the society. Two general membership meetings are held each year and many field trips are scheduled each weekend to areas rich in botanical interest. Membership is available for individuals or for a household for one year or three years. For additional information contact any of the officers.
