Pahove Chapter (Boise)

Welcome to Our Chapter

Welcome to the Pahove Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society. We are located in Boise and support the citizens of the Treasure Valley and beyond. 

2020/2021 Meetings/Presentations

Our chapter will hold virtual meetings for our members for the remainder of 2020 and then we will determine if we will continue with that new format in the New Year or if we will hold meetings as we have done in the past at the MK Nature Center. Either way we want to stay connected with you and we want to continue to provide fascinating presentations. This new virtual format may even allow us to bring in speakers from far and wide that would normally not be able to present in person. 
 
PRESENTATIONS WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY ON THE 2ND TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH:
Our virtual presentations this season will be at 7pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, in keeping with our regular schedule. Presentations, with permission, will be posted onto Vimeo for viewing (see the link below).
