Our By-Laws may be viewed at this link to the By-Laws document.

Dues for local chapter membership are paid yearly and renewable January 1. Please do include your email address, even if you are opting for the paper Saximontana, as we do send out notices of meetings and changes.  In addition to membership to the local chapter, we also encourage membership to the national umbrella organization, North American Rock Garden Society. Benefits are outlined on the NARGS website.

Benefits of Membership to RMC-NARGS

  • Chapter meetings feature slide lectures of local, national, and international experts, including plant hunters who explore mountains and steppes worldwide to collect seeds from plants with horticultural promise. There is also time for socializing.
  • Events include field trips to study rock alpine plants in their native habitat, visits to members’ gardens, workshops (e.g., make troughs, build a member’s rock garden) and plant sales each Spring and Fall.
  • The newsletter Saximontana features plant and gardening articles and information about coming events in 10 issues per year.
  • Membership entitles you to volunteer at meetings, plant sales, and other events. This is the best way to get to know other members and increase your knowledge about rock gardening and plants.
