Due to the work of so many volunteers, RIWPS’ May and June Sales sent over 4,500 native plants into Rhode Island and surrounding communities. People are looking to be good stewards of the landscape by adding more native plants and our sales are the best place to find a great selection of native flowers, shrubs, trees, ferns, and grasses and at reasonable prices.
Anne Raver, RIWPS Board Member with over 30 years of experience writing about landscapes and the environment, describes her experiences with her now three-year-old native garden.
Thanks to membership dues and other donations the RIWPS Annual Grant Committee was able to award $4,000 in grants this year. The money will support a project to collect and document plants in Rhode Island and two public school projects to encourage budding young naturalists and botanists through onsite native plant gardens.
With great pleasure, RIWPS announced the recipients of the Annual Volunteer Awards at the March 25 Annual Meeting which took place in the Pharmacy Building at the University of Rhode Island.
Voting on the proposed changes will take place during the business section of the March Annual Meeting.
