Upcoming Events

9th MACPS Meeting

12 pm-5 pm, Sunday, August 25, 2019

Lilypons Water Gardens

6800 Lily Pons Road, Adamstown, MD 21710

Our 9th meeting will be hosted at the gorgeous Lilypons Water Gardens in Adamstown, MD. We will have a tour of the grounds, a plant auction, and several talks. This is a great opportunity to learn about carnivorous plants in a setting with unique water plants you don't see at your typical nursery!

To offset cost of booking the venue and lunch, we are asking $10 per person for this meeting. MACPS has subsidized the rest of the cost. Please RSVP early so we have a headcount for food and know about any dietary restrictions you may have. Registration will close promptly at noon on Monday, August 19. 

Paid members are invited to sell plants in the auction. 50% of proceeds go to MACPS to cover meeting costs and field trip subsidies. Anyone is welcome to donate plants to the auction. We strongly encourage you to preregister plants below, which will streamline meeting setup and enable members to see the plants available.

About Us

Founded in January 2017, MACPS is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting scientific knowledge, education, and general awareness of carnivorous plants and their cultivation. We hold four meetings a year throughout PA, MD, VA, WV, DE, NJ, NY, and Washington, D.C., and also go on field trips and exchange cultivation advice that is uniquely suited for this region. 

Our meetings are open to everyone! They feature lunch, a moderated Q&A on carnivorous plant cultivation, talks, workshops, and a plant auction. You are always encouraged to bring plants to display and auction.
