Sego Lily newsletters
Utah Native Plant Society

Welcome to the electronic collection of the Sego Lily, the newsletter of the Utah Native Plant Society.

Each of the newsletter issues below are in PDF format. You will need to have a previously installed version of the free Adobe Acrobat reader. (Or another free and faster reader that we would highly recommend is the Foxit Reader.) To view, simply click on the file name corresponding to the issue you wish to view.

These will each load into a new window. The individual issues are typically between 350-950K (sometimes somewhat larger) in size so when you click on the link, please give it a little while to download (time depends on your connection speed). The archived/full year volume sets are much larger. To save a newsletter to your local PC's hard drive for future reference, you can also save these issues by right clicking on the file name and selecting the appropriate "Save as" option.

If you wish to print the newsletter, you may do so by clicking on the Printer icon within your reader (rather than the Print option under File of your browser).

To search for something of interest, the search option is available (it will search our entire web site including the newsletter; try an initial search and then use the options button to further refine your search). Or, try the XLS index file.

Individual issues Nov 2001 to present  Yearly archives 1978 to 2007 Index to volumes 1-31 (1978-2008) in XLS format
