ANPS Monthly Meetings

The public is invited to monthly meetings that are held the first Monday of the month, starting in October and running through May. The meetings are at the Campbell Creek Science Center and start at 7:00 pm. (Please note the half hour earlier start time than prior meetings!)

Specially invited speakers present a topic of their choice at each meeting. ANPS members also do shorter presentations on topics of botanical interest. Each season we also select a plant family to study and members present different species within that family at each meeting.

Here is a map to the CCSC, 5600 Science Center Drive, Anchorage, AK 99507-2599.

Volunteer early to get your first choice of presentation time slot! Please feel free to suggest topics or speakers.

The plant "family" for the fall-winter 2018_2019 will be Rosaceae. Thanks in advance to the volunteer speakers.
