Meet NANPS volunteers at our Information Booths. This section has information about where our volunteers will be next so you can meet them to ask your questions, obtain local genotypes of native plant seeds, pick up information about upcoming native plant activities, and JOIN NANPS!

NANPS is operated entirely by volunteers. If you would like to host a NANPS information booth near you or volunteer to help staff an already scheduled booth, please contact us! We'll be happy to find other NANPSters in your area to help.

We have many information booths planned throughout the year. At the moment, there are none. Check out our past information booths on the right to see where we have been.
