White Pine members—if you signed up for, but have not received the fall issue of Sage Notes, the statewide INPS newsletter, please contact Nancy Miller email@example.com and she will work with the INPS board to resolve this.
It’s not too early to join/renew your INPS membership, in order to enjoy and support native plant conservation. The Fall Sage Notes provides examples, such as White Pine member Janice Hill’s comprehensive article on the rare Spalding’s catchfly http://idahonativeplants.org/. You will also learn about other active White Pine folks, and chapter involvements including weeding native plant refuges and the small grants program.
