New Collection: Native Plant Society of the Miami Valley Records

In June 1986, the Native Plant Society of the Miami Valley (NPSMV) was created for the purpose of promoting and preserving native plants and their habitats through education, sponsorship, and cooperation.  The not-for-profit society was organized exclusively for scientific purposes.  NPSMV was a local chapter of the Native Plant Society of Ohio, and membership was open to all those interested in the purpose and goals of the organization. The NPSMV Records include administrative and communications documents as well as those pertaining to the organization’s efforts toward the establishment and preservation of the Little Beaver Creek Prairie in Greene County.  NPSMV ceased operations in 2007.
