New SW Mo Chapter of MONPS
A new chapter is in the formation stage meeting at the Springfield Nature Center at 6 PM on the second Tuesday of each month. The group has a database of 63 interested individuals. 33 were in attendance at the first meeting. At the second meeting, we had 21 attending. The group had our first field trip to Rocky Barrens in Green County on April 18th.
We have a field trip planned for May 23rd to Lead Mines CA adjacent to the Niangua River. It has been reported that four different species of Lady Slipper Orchids have been found in this 10,000 acre area. The leader of this trip will be Mike Skinner.
