Our newsletter

Our Chapter newsletter, The Paintbrush, is currently published several times each year. Contributions to the newsletter are always welcome, — articles are usually from Chapter members, but not exclusively so, and can be on almost any subject related to native flora. If you have a contribution, please contact the Editor or submit a message via the Contact Us page.
Please note: From January 2021 onward, our newsletter is email-based, but a copy is archived and accessible below on this page. In most instances, the email newsletter will contain only an abbreviated version of each news item. The full versions of these articles are accessible from our News & Stories Page. (Note that the Paintbrush was not published between the Winter 2020 and January 2021 issues.)
You can download our newsletters from the following links. All newsletters are Portable Document Format (PDF) files, which require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader or equivalent software. Files are compatible with Acrobat Version 5.0.
