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.  Contact John Clarke for details or to volunteer

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 John Clarke for details

Giving Tuesday is upon us!  Our Grants and Scholarship Committee has been working hard and we’re receiving more applications all the time - so many that we need to increase our budget!  That’s a great news story so please include NCNPS in your donation plans on Tuesday, 27 November! You can also donate through donor matching programs at your place of employment or designate The NCNPS as the recipient of your “Amazon Smile” program.
