Celebrate the Wild calendar

The Fremont Chapter has for the past two years published a full color calendar featuring native plants each month of which is accompanied by informative sidebars. Here is the cover page for the 2010 calendar:

Fremont 2010 calendar cover page

Sample pages from the 2009 calendar:

March 2009 calendar - top
March 2009 calendar - bottom

The calendar is of particular interest to gardeners and landscapers since it provides ideas and information about native plant horticulture and use.

Cost of the 2010 calendar is $10.00 ($8.00 for 10 or more) plus shipping ($1.75/each). Any profits from the sale of the calendar will be used to further the chapter's goals to educate the public about the use of native plants in landscaping, and native plant appreciation generally.

The calendar is available for mailing from Janet Nielson, Box 104, Elsinore, UT 84724. Send her an e-mail for more information. Make your check or money order payable to Fremont Chapter UNPS Chapter.
