NHAS Membership Meetings

Our membership meetings are usually held in the Visitor Education Center at the North Carolina Botanical Garden, 100 Old Mason Farm Road, Chapel Hill, on the first Thursday of every month (except June, July, and August).  However, due to COVID-19, our monthly meetings will be virtual meetings via Zoom. To register for these Zoom meetings, see our Home Page Announcements section for a registration link. Everyone, including non-members, is welcome! See you at a meeting soon!

We are recording our Zoom meetings, and those recordings will be available a few days after each meeting. Click here for links to these recordings.
