Native Plant Seminars
The Tennessee Native Plant Society hosts monthly Native Plant Seminars. 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 last 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 our Calendar website pages.
Speakers are drawn from our knowledgeable membership, from professionals across the state, and from the professors and students studying our Tennessee native plants. A range of topics are covered that includes 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.
