Call for MPF, Grow Native!, and MoIP Award Nominations--Deadlines Approach

MPF, its Grow Native! program, and the Missouri Invasive Plant Task Force (MoIP), administered by MPF, is accepting nominations for its 2020 MPF awards (prairie pioneer, prairie professional, prairie communicator, prairie volunteer, and prairie landowner); Grow Native! awards, and the MoIP Invasive Plant Action Award.

With a nod to its 20th anniversary this year, MPF's Grow Native! program has created a new award category: Native Plant Protector. This award will recognize individual(s) for outstanding work to protect native plants in their natural habitats through enforcement, advocacy, stewardship, or other work.

One need not be a member of MPF to be nominated for an award. Current MPF board members are not eligible to receive an award. If you nominated someone in the past who was not selected for an award, we encourage you to renominate that individual. Nominations for the MPF awards and Grow Native! awards must be received by July 15, 2020. Nominations for the MoIP award must be received by August 1, 2020. 

Past awardees are listed at the MPF and Grow Native! links above.
