Shirley Braunlich • Lawrence, KS

Shirley Braunlich
Craig Freeman, Shirley Braunlich, Valerie Wright

Shirley has been an advocate for native plants & KNPS from the time she began serving on the board.

She has been the organization's lead in compiling lists of events that our members would be interested in attending.

She has also planned and lead various wildflower hikes in the Lawrence area and elsewhere.

She also promotes native plants and KNPS at her place of work, the Lawrence Public Library.

Each year she works to get a State Proclamation naming June as Native Plant Appreciation Month.

KNPS would not be the organization it is without the efforts of Shirley.
