Leaders Wanted

One way to make the most of DVFWS is to become an officer. Elections will be held at our early spring meeting and we need members to volunteer to guide the organization. Give some thought as to how you can become involved, by either leading meetings, field trips, or setting up displays at various plant programs. There are also the behind the scene support activities that you may be great at doing. It doesn’t happen without you.

The purpose of the Delaware Valley Fern & Wildflower Society shall be to encourage the enjoyment of native Ferns and Wildflowers by cultivating and propagating them in the home and garden; by studying them in their wild habitats, gardens and conservatories; by promoting their conservation and preservation; and by providing a forum for the exchange of information and expertise.


Membership in the DVFWS is open to anyone who is interested in native ferns and wildflowers and is willing to support the society. Three general membership meetings are held each year and many field trips are scheduled each weekend to areas rich in botanical interest. Membership is available for individuals or for a household for one year or three years. For additional information contact any of the officers.
