The Muhlenberg Botanical Society of Lancaster PA meets on the 3rd Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Spring from February to May and in the Fall from September to November at the North Museum of Science and Natural History. Various field trips to explore interesting native plant habitats are scheduled from April to October. A native plant exchange among the members is held twice a year. Annual membership dues are $15 per household or $10 for students not included in a household. Contact information for questions and comments can be found in the newsletters.

The primary missions of the Muhlenberg Botanical Society are:

  • To help members and the general public learn about and appreciate native plants in South-central and South-eastern Pennsylvania, with emphasis on the identification and ecology of plants.

  • To share knowledge of the phylogeny, biogeography, and ecology of plants and flowers in the Mid-Atlantic region and around the world.

  • To help preserve native plants through cultivation and habitat restoration.

NOTE: Meetings are via Zoom until further notice.
