Membership Outreach

The Outreach Committee set up a table to recruit new members at the HPS Plant Sale in August, and at the SCEE Native Plant Sale in September.

Let us know if you can write publicity announcements, or even help to place them in newspapers and social media.

We are seeking a Membership Coodination team to assist in signing up prospective members at meetings and to correspond with new members of the Society.

Join or renew now! Here is the membership form to renew.


The Delaware Valley Fern & Wildflower Society is a group with a passion for studying native plants in their wild habitats, to encourage the enjoyment of native Ferns and Wildflowers by cultivating and propagating them in the home, gardens and conservatories; by promoting their conservation and preservation; and by providing a forum for the exchange of information and expertise. We hold two meetings a year, a summer picnic, and monthly walks through the wildflowers in between.
