NPAT’s Chapters’ Monthly Meet-ups

NPAT’s Chapters’ monthly meet ups offer opportunities to meet people with common interests!

Listen to talks presented by dedicated and highly-qualified individuals serving your area: county and municipal agents working in water conservation, native vegetation, habitat restoration, ecological practices; people whose knowledge of practices will benefit landowners, nature conservationists, wildlife experts, and others dedicated to sharing knowledge - for the future of our great prairies!
