Safely Getting Back to business
With the rollout of the Coronavirus vaccines, TAP is cautiously reopening its doors. Our events during the summer will be purposefully smaller and we plan on being outside more than usual. Additionally, we have many handwashing and hand sanitizer stations. We have missed getting our hands dirty and exchanging ideas and restoration techniques with you all. The time has finally come when we can meet at the Euchee Butterfly Farm once again!
We are still hard at work growing, distributing, and helping our members plant native Oklahoma prairie plants on the farm. Our plants still need homes, so if you are interested, we have an especially wide selection this year so please contact us and we can figure out the best solution! The TAP team has been doing a lot of construction to transform and elevate the farm grounds to a new level.
In signing up for membership, you can also sign up for our newsletter. These letters detail webinars and event registration as well as bios on native prairie plants and what you can do at home during the pandemic!
Wishing all of you the best,
The TAP team
Will the conference be delayed due to the delta variant of the coronavirus?
It is possible, yes. Keeping the safety of members and attendees is our top priority. While we have all become familiar with like large air filters, plenty of masks, and handwashing stations, if it is deemed too soon to have a large conference, we will reschedule. Hopefully, that doesn’t happen. Either way, we will keep you all updated! We look forward too seeing everyone when it is safe to do so.
