Michigan Botanical Club - Special Members Chapter
NEW MBC CHAPTER - The Special Members Chapter was officially endorsed as a Chapter of The Michigan Botanical Club on May 23, 2015. You can click on a list of our Officers and copy of our SMC Constitution.
We welcome, Derek Shields, our new Vice-President of SMC who currently resides in the Petoskey area.
Our members consist of those interested in joining the Michigan Botanical Club who live a distance from a regional chapter. We range throughout the Great Lakes area, including Canada, and several long distance States. Members typically join SMC to be informed about Club activities, such as the annual Spring Foray, and wish to subscribe to our peer-reviewed journal, The Michigan Botanist. Membership includes a one year subscription (four issues) to "The Michigan Botanist- A Journal of Great Lakes Botany" and two issues of the "Arisaema" newsletter.
Programs: Student Foray Awards !!! The Special Member Chapter participates in the Joan Robb Student Foray Awards program that offers grants for students to attend the annual MBC Spring Foray.
