Native Plant Seminars

The Tennessee Native Plant Society began hosting monthly Native Plant Seminars on March 16, 2021. These events are held via Zoom on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Eastern (6:30 p.m. Central) and lasting about one hour. All members, and potential members, are welcome to join the seminars at no cost. The link to join each seminar is posted on the Calendar website pages and is also available in the “2021 Native Plant Seminars”, see the button below.

Speakers are drawn from our most knowledgeable membership, from professionals across the state, and from the professors and students studying our Tennessee native plants.  A range of topics will be covered that may include plants that are currently blooming, native plants in our yards, current research on native plants, protections for native plants, and so much more.

Join us for an hour a month to learn more about our Tennessee native plants. If you miss the live seminar, you can usually watch the video by clicking on “VIDEO” next to the seminar listing below. Of course, you won’t be able to ask questions on the video.
