What's New

(last update, 14 November 2018)

We’re in need of at least two people to volunteer to help plan our Spring and Fall outings.  Our Program Committee Chair position is currently vacant and we really do need folks to help us start planning in earnest for our Spring Outing.  While we don’t have a date nailed down, we do have ideas for locations.  The Program Committee will help us organize the hikes and hike leaders - and we’ll also want someone to help us coordinate the ever-popular Native Plant Auction. 

Do you have accounting and/or bookkeeping experience?  Our current Treasurer took on the job on a “temporary” basis over a year ago and we’d like to help her ease out of the job.  We’re looking for a Treasurer and Bookkeeper to manage our financial matters, including our Grants and Scholarships funds which are an important part of our mission.  We use Quickbooks as our accounting software so knowledge of that would be helpful but not required.

Contact your local Chapter Chair or one of the Board members for more information on either of these two opportunities.
