Welcome to the Gila (Silver City) Chapter
The Gila Native Plant Society is committed to promoting education, research, and appreciation of the native flora of the Southwest; encouraging the preservation of rare and endangered plant species; and supporting the use of suitable native plants in landscaping.
Monthly evening programs will resume this fall. Because of the inroads of the Delta variant, we will have to depend on Zoom for a while longer.
Gila Chapter members will receive a Zoom link by email; any others interested may request a link from gilanative [at] gmail [dot] com. All are welcome. For more information, check our website at www.gilanps.org/events/programs.
You will receive an email invitation with the link to the meeting (and directions).
Future events are listed to the right; please click on each link for additional information!
For more information on our programs, events, publications and the newsletter ("Bulletin") please visit www.gilanps.org.
Meetings ordinarily are third Fridays October-May at 7 p.m. in WNMU’s Harlan Hall, Room 219, with refreshments following the program.
All programs are free and open to the public. Ordinarily, the Gila chapter conducts field trips on the third Sunday of each month from April to September. Each field trip will be to a different location in order to explore the diversity of our native plants. Field trips are free and open to the public. Meet at 8:00 am in the south parking lot of the WNMU Fine Arts Center Theatre for carpooling.
