2015 WyNPS Annual Meeting – TWO SIDES OF THE TETONS
The July 10-13, 2015 joint annual meeting of the Wyoming and Idaho Native Plant Societies will feature field trips to both the east and west slopes of the Tetons. Trips will range from easy walks to all-day, strenuous hikes and include chair lift rides for tours of high alpine areas. You can register on-line at: http://idahonativeplants.org/statewide-annual-meeting/ or by using the registration form mailed with the newsletter and posted with the newsletter.
Register now for three days of exciting fieldtrips, dinner and featured speaker Dr. Dennis Knight at the Driggs City Center the evening of Saturday, July 11, and camping at Reunion Flat, our basecamp in Teton Canyon – the same low camping fee applies whether you stay one night or four nights. It can accommodate both RVs and tents.
There are numerous other camping options in the canyon. There are a small number of cabins near Driggs that can be reserved at Teton Valley Cabins (208-354-8153, www.tetonvalleycabins.com). To reserve a cabin, call soon and tell them you are with the Native Plant Society to get a cabin in our reserved block.

Below is the link to the 2014 Wyoming Vascular and Nonvascular Plant Identification References document, collated and provided by Bonnie Heidel. Included are plant ID references, including every popular and technical book that has ever been reviewed in the newsletter (and some that haven’t), all current floras of adjoining states (since Wyoming’s doesn’t have habitat description or graphics), and a phone app for the first time.

Our mailing address is changing from P.O. Box 2500 to P.O. Box 2449. We have used box 2500 for a long time but when the post office remodeled some years ago, 2500 became a larger box that costs more. The Post Office let us continue using 2500 but actually put our mail into box 2449, a smaller one. Recently we received a note in our box saying we can no longer continue to do this so we have opted to use the less expensive box that has been meeting our needs for years.
