Annual Meeting. We have cancelled the Annual Meeting on 28 March. We hope to feature our speaker, Dr. Susan Barton, at our fall meeting. We are communicating RIWPS members about important business items including voting for members of the Board of Trustee.
Plant Sales. The May 9th early native plant sale has been cancelled. Our seed starters groups are no longer meeting and for their protection and our customers protection we will not schedule an event while the virus continues to spread. By May 1st a decision will be made on the June 6th native plant sale. If held, the sale will be smaller than usual due to the limitations placed on us during this time.
Programs. Our April and May First Thursday Botanizing walks have been cancelled and we will evaluate our other walks and programs as the time for each approaches
Being in nature can be both physically and mentally restorative. We hope you will find yourself in the outdoors, and on the trails. Check out our self guided walks. or Partner Page for links to organizations with conservation lands where you can walk. (It is imperative to only walk in areas where you can maintain your social distance.) Focused on you own garden? See our planting resources.
Thank you for your support of RIWPS. Even in these trying times our mission remains important and we need to keep that focus in mind.
Most of all – Say Safe,
Dick Fisher – for the RIWPS Board
