Tickets for our Fall Conference are Going Fast
Don't Miss Out
In order to have a positive experience for everyone who attends the conference and for the speakers and vendors, we are arranging tables and chairs for optimum visibility and accessibility rather than maximum density..
So we are limited to the number of tickets we can sell and we cannot guarantee space, or lunch, for walk-ins.
When you register enter the number of tickets you want but before you click on "Add to Cart" and check out, scroll to the bottom of the page and read the choices for lunch, and type in what you like into the Discussion/Comment box. Then click "Add to Cart" and complete the registration process.
Members have already been sent the password for a significant discount in the registration fees, so if you have not received the discount password, it means that according to our records, you need to pay your 2016 dues.
We will also have what will be the last public native plant sale in NJ this year and a native plant seed swap. Don't have any seeds to trade? Don't worry, you can still take some home.
If you have lots of enthusiasm we can use your help:
NPSNJ has some property in Holland township and we want to make improvements on our preserve. We currently are working on clearing the invasives and building a trail.
We have some work days scheduled:
October 21. 2:00-4:00
November 12, 10:00-12:00
November 15, 2:00-4:00
November 25, 2:00-4:00

Our annual meeting is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the native plant movement in New Jersey. We organize nature walks and garden tours, dispense advice on design and maintenance of native gardens and landscapes, and have helped establish native plant gardens around the state.
there is a plant in New Jersey that is found nowhere else in the world! Read about it: rare NJ native plant.
New Jersey's diversity of habitat, in concert with four distinct seasons, blesses our state with botanical variety. From the stirrings of spring ephemerals through the forest litter, to the abundance for summer pollinator plants, to the turning of deciduous leaves, and then to the berries of winter, each season adorns Jersey with a wonderful display of flora.
