Welcome to the Las Cruces Chapter

We are currently having hybrid meetings (in-person and broadcast on Zoom) at 7:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month. We often have a social with refreshments starting at 6:30 p.m.. If you will be attending in-person, meet at the NMSU campus in the Biology Annex, Herbarium Building, 3080 Williams Avenue, Room 101. If you plan to attend on Zoom, you can obtain the link prior to each meeting by emailing your request to: LC [at] npsnm [dot] org.

Check the NPSNM website, the LC Chapter's Facebook page, and recent email for updates, changes, additional news, and other events and activities of interest. Some events of interest by other organizations become known only a few days before happening.

The Las Cruces Chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico is pleased to offer our first annual $500 grant to a student at NMSU whose work/project/research is highly related to the organization's mission. The deadline was October 15, 2022 - we look forward to reviewing the submitted applications and awarding the $500.
