Mengel Natural History Society

At the April and September meetings of the Mengel Natural History Society there is a Wildflower Exchange & Give-away

At the October meeting there is a Wildflower Seed Exchange & Give-away.

These are mostly give-aways to audience, but, as a thank you, those who bring something get to exchange first. Members with surplus native wild flowers, ferns, shrubs, etc. (or seeds) from their gardens bring them to share with the audience. Please participate if you can. 

This is an opportunity to enlarge your wild flower garden or help others get a start. There have been many fine plants at past meetings including Virginia bluebells, bloodroot, celandine poppy, jack-in-the-pulpit, wood fern, dogwood seedlings, blue-eyed grass, pawpaw, asters, and seeds of many species. 

The public is welcome at this program. The Mengel Natural History Society meets at McConnell Hall, Nolde Environmental Education Center on PA-625.

We expect that all plants come from member's gardens and fields.
