WELCOME to the

NPSO 2017 Annual Meeting

June 9-11

Be sure to check out the "WHAT'S NEW" page!


The “Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua" will be our botanical landscape for the 2017 Annual Meeting, June 9-11, 2017.  

The meeting location, Phoenix Charter School, is situated on the Diamond Lake Highway (138), east of the downtown area (see map and directions).


Students at Phoenix School are often involved in habitat restoration and other community projects (http://www.roseburgphoenix.com/community.html). 

Douglas County is situated at a “botanical crossroads” between the California Floristic Province and the Vancouverian Floristic Province.  This, combined with particular geological formations, leads to high plant diversity in the county.  Many species are near their northern or southern range limits and several species are endemic to the county. 

The Umpqua Valley and Corvallis Chapters are happy to host the 2017 Annual Meeting in the beautiful “Land of Umpqua” and we hope you can join us in experiencing this wildflower-rich area.


A printable Registration Form appears on the Registration page.  A hard copy Registration Form was included in the March Bulletin.  Student scholarships to attend the meeting will be available and are explained on the Stipend page.  

Deadline for priority registration at reduced cost is May 7th.  Given the potential for a very high snowpack this year, some fieldtrips may have alternate destinations (similar to the 2008 meeting).
