In these difficult times, the community has come through in an amazing way in support of the 51 local non-profits participating in Give Grandly! Donations so far have totaled over $221,000, more than in any year since the effort began. And the Gila Native Plant Society received $1,842, a record amount, thanks to our generous supporters.

The video we prepared for the Give Grandly! event is now on our website along with the longer version created for Earth Day. Take a look!

Pollinator Mural

Next time you’re downtown, take a look at the wonderful Pollinator Mural on the corner of Texas and Broadway. GNPS participated with the Southwestern New Mexico Audubon Society, the Grant County Beekeepers and the Grant County Archaeological Society on a mural celebrating pollinators and native plants and addressing the issue of climate change. Aldo Leopold High School students produced the mural under the direction of art instructor Allison Phillips. The dedication of this mural was held on October 26 and included a much-appreciated plant give-away.
