The Arizona Native Plant Society (AZNPS) Santa Cruz Chapter is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the native plants of our region. Giving an opportunity for like-minded people to gather and further our knowledge, we learn plant identification, which plants are edible and medicinal, how to forage and harvest ethically, and how to preserve and cultivate them. We meet on the first Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. lasting around an hour and a half, and altering meeting spaces between Sonoita and Patagonia.
