Native Plant Day in New Mexico
We hope you enjoyed Native Plant Day this year. Did you spend some time in nature, plant a native plant, press a specimen, or show friends your garden?
We thank Carol Johnson, Santa Fe member of NPSNM, for prompting Governor Michele Lujan-Grisham to proclaim August 20 as Native Plant Day, acknowledging the importance of native plants in our state. Here is a little history of the proclamation.
