Exploration Awards

SRGC Exploration Awards were set up in 1985 to make awards to help finance projects or trips relating to rock garden plants.  Feedback in the form of journal articles, talks (in person or online), reports, photographs etc is expected.. Recipients of awards need not necessarily be members of the SRGC.
