The Palm Beach County Chapter does not have a formal program to encourage youth Conference attendance. We did sponsor an art exhibit of elementary school students’ work when Conference was in Miami. Several of our board members would like to see that continued. Other ideas from our board: we could work with area colleges that have programs that relate and perhaps offer some partial scholarships for selected students to attend the annual conference. We could be making contact with area colleges / professors in environmental studies to make sure they are aware of the annual conference as well as our meetings

The Palm Beach County Chapter does not have a formal mentoring program, and we are very interested in what other Chapters are doing. As for a definition of mentorship, Perhaps this falls under what we have wanted to do with our membership committee: in general greeting and speaking to all people coming to our monthly meetings to have them feel welcomed and giving new members a member packet.
Our chapter is partnering with Mounts Botanical Garden to maintain their native plant garden, and we reach out to our membership for volunteers for a monthly “Groom the Garden” work party. It’s a good learning opportunity, and snacks are provided!!

I am attaching the schedule as I received it by email.  I think each of you should have gotten it also, but I do know that I failed to notice that it was thre.

You also need to register with the Archbold Biological Station.  Lots of options, depending on whether you need to stay overnight, want meals,  or not.   Everyone must register.   The link is https://www.archbold-station.org/html/temp/fnps_0819.html

There is no "subscribe" to get information.  However, if you want information AND you have a forum login, you can click Notify in the black band above the post announcing meeting to get emails sent from the forum to you for each new reply.  If you don't want a bunch of emails, just read the post, any attachments, and the various replies.

Field trip chairman makes a Pre field trip Plant ID lists for participants, or prepares a scavenger hunt for specific plants
Tend a monthly garden work day, bring extra thinned plants home,
Participate in quarterly Adopt -a- highway clean up to also monitor seasonal flowering plants
Have members Collect seeds from our gardens to prepare outreach packets
Ask member to research and prepare a program on one native plant or write an article for the newsletter

What are chapters doing to mentor their members, if anything?

What do you define as mentorship?

What can we do to improve this?

How can we increase the attendance of young people at the Conference?

This can be student and young professionals/public sector.

Are Chapters willing to provide scholarships?

Can we coordinate funding between chapters?

Where should chapters seek young people to encourage?

Other questions or out of the box thinking? Go for it!
