Dates and general locations for the 2020 field trips are finalized below and we’d love to see you there! Bring your family and friends. Please note that the specific field sites for each trip will definitely change and narrow as planning progresses. The field sites shown below are those that were suggested as possibilities during the 2019 winter board meeting and are presented here to whet your appetite for types of sites in the regions.
Field trips generally consist of a Friday afternoon excursion, a full-day field trip on Saturday to one or more locales, and a Sunday morning field trip. Attendees are welcome to join the expedition for all three days, or to just come for the portion/s that fit your schedule. An invited speaker will provide a presentation during one evening (usually Friday) and we will hold a board meeting one evening as well.
For detailed logistics about each trip, keep an eye on upcoming issues of the Petal Pusher, the MONPS Website and our Facebook page.
