The Native Plant Society of Texas is planning to hold their symposium in Wichita Falls this year. The Symposium will be October 15 - 17, with a number of lectures, social events and field trips. Unfortunately, the dates conflict with a "must attend" conference for me, but I plan to attend some of the lectures on Saturday when I get home.
You can register online or if you prefer to register by mail, contact Martha at River Bend (940-767-0843) or Paul Dowlearn at Wichita Valley (940-696-3082). Both have hard copy registration information. You can attend the entire conference for $120 if you register by October 9 (this includes several meals and printed proceedings) or if, like me, you want to attend only the lectures, it's only $10. What a deal.
We're lucky to be able to have such an event in Wichita Falls.
