    Come golf with the billings chapter!

    The 9th Annual MNLA Billings Chapter Golf Scramble is being held at Briarwood Golf Course in Billings, MT on August 11th. Format is a 4-Person scramble. Shotgun start at 1:00 pm.

    This annual event draws members from all over the state, and is always a great time. Do you need to be a member to participate? No! Anyone can form a team - just complete the golf registration form,  and get your clubs ready for a fun day on the course. Don't worry if you've got a wicked right hook -- buy a Mulligan (or two) and use it to erase those bad shots! There will be hole prizes, a cash prize for the winning team, and Hole-in-One prize for those skilled (or lucky) enough to sink that hole-in-one. Entry fee includes greens fee, golf cart, refreshments & social hour.

    Contact the MNLA office for more information, 406.755.3079, or follow the link to register. We look forward to seeing you!

    Prefer to mail or fax your registration in? We will link the downloadable registration form when available.

    Prove your plant knowledge!

    The next Certified Plant Professional (CPP) Exam will take place on Thursday, September 15th from 1:00-4:00 pm (the day before the annual Fall Tour), in Helena, MT. Exact location TBD.

    Eligible applicants need to apply online by following the link to register, or submit a completed application, documentation of nursery employment and the appropriate fees to the MNLA office by August 31st. Download the application form here.

    The certification tests are generally given twice a year, in January at the annual Montana Green Expo and in September at the annual Fall Tour. The exam consists of a plant identification test and a written test. The exam is based on the Certification Manual and on practical information gained from employment in the industry, and on identification of the correct genus, species, common name, and cultivar (if appropriate) for each plant.

    The ID portion of the exam involves identifying 50 plant samples, and is based upon plants covered in Choosing Trees and Shrubs for Montana Landscapes, by George Evans and Alan Epps, as well as lists of Montana perennials and woody plants. These publications and lists are included in the manual. The second portion of the exam is a 200 question written exam on the principles and practices of virtually all aspects of the nursery industry. A passing grade is 75% for both parts of the exam. Bring at least two sharpened pencils to take the exam. We also recommend that you bring several sheets of scratch paper.

    Please see the Education & Certification page on our site for details on eligibility and renewal as well as a number of additional forms and how to order your CPP Manual (a highly recommended book for preparing for the exam). Manuals can be ordered by submitting an order form to the MNLA office before August 31st.

    Good luck!

    Thank you to TBD, for allowing us to use their facility for the Certified Plant Professional Exam!
