Greetings to Big Bend NPSOT Chapter Members.

I would like to give you an update on the state of our chapter. Our activity has waned in the fall months of 2023 due to a number of staff medical issues. We are happy to report that we will have a number of spring programs for the chapter. The Spring program schedule is listed below. And yes!, we will have a plant sale this year. Please save the date for the program you are interested in attending.

We are in need of volunteers to assist in operating the chapter for 2024. If interested please contact Tom Kennedy at
