Field trips occur throughout spring, summer, and early fall to local and regional areas of botanical interest. Most are on Saturdays, with occasional overnight or weekday events, and are at participants' sole risk. Themes include plant identification, photography, wildflower displays, ecology, rare and endangered species conservation, and weed control.
 
There is often an August potluck and social at a park or arboretum in the Reno area.
 
A seed exchange program occurs as members have the time and ability to gather, process, and package seeds. Packets of numerous native species have been made available for the cost of postage.
