Welcome to the Las Cruces Chapter

The Las Cruces NPS Chapter proudly proclaims the week of April 18th -- 24th, 2021 to be Native Plant Week!

To learn more, please visit our event page.

Meetings are second or third Wednesdays (unless otherwise noted) at 7 PM. For the time being, meetings are "broadcast" online via the Zoom application and you are encouraged to enjoy them with us, which can include posting your own questions or comments. Click on the event listing to the right to see more on an upcoming presentation. Outdoor experiences, if planned, will also be listed the the right.

If you have never participated in a Zoom meeting before, download the free Zoom application into your computer ahead of time by going to https://www.zoom.us/ .  You will only have to do this once to join any meeting in the future, although Zoom may take an extra minute to update security features on occasion. Chapter members receive a link to each meeting by email. If you are interested but are not a member of the Las Cruces chapter, send an email to John Freyermuth: szygint4"at"hotmail.com.

Because of current NM state restrictions to limit the spread of Covid-19, in-person NPSNM chapter meetings are not yet planned. Some chapters may schedule field trips with numbers limited and practicing social distancing and face covering according to current health department guidelines.
