We hold indoor meetings twice a year in November and March, a summer picnic, and trips to explore natural areas and formal gardens in between. We often staff an exhibit of native ferns and wildflowers to educate others at the Philadelphia Flower Show, Hardy Plant Society Sale, native plant sales and area conferences.
