The Events Calendar contains information on future meetings, field trips, and workshops hosted by AKNPS. The public is invited to monthly meetings that are held the first Monday of the month, starting in October and running through May and start at 7:00 pm. Meetings are held virtually, and often are held simultaneously in person (see location details). Specially invited speakers present a topic of their choice at each meeting. AKNPS 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. Thanks in advance to all volunteer speakers! Below is a map to the Campbell Creek Science Center.

In 2022 and 2023, AKNPS is holding its monthly member meetings via Zoom and in-person, though some meetings may be virtual-only to accommodate remote speakers. In-person meetings are held at the Campbell Creek Science Center (see map below). Members will receive information to access the webinars prior to meeting dates. In-person and virtual meetings are also open to the public. If you would like to listen to a virtual meeting, please email the webmaster requesting the meeting information.
