NPSO 2024 Annual Meeting

May 17 - 19     Spirit Mountain Hotel, Grand Ronde, Oregon

27100 SW Salmon River Hwy, Grand Ronde, OR 97347


Nestled in the foothills of Oregon’s Coast Range, the Spirit Mountain Hotel in Grand Ronde is just a short drive from Portland, Salem, and Lincoln City. It is situated between the mid-Willamette Valley and the coast, enabling us to offer field trips in the valley, at the coast, and in the Coast Range.

A variety of accommodations are available at the Hotel, ranging from a standard room with two queens or one king-sized bed to a deluxe suite. Rooms are equipped with a flat screen TV, mini-refrigerator, safe, iron/ironing board, free Wi-Fi, and coffee bar. All rooms in the Hotel and meeting spaces are smoke-free. A discounted block of rooms (queens or king sized) will be held for NPSO until April 17. The rate is $149 plus tax (10%). To avoid cancellation charges, reservations should be canceled 48 hours prior to reserved arrival.

To make a reservation call 1-800-760-7977, tell the receptionist you are with the Native Plant Society of Oregon and give them the booking ID 4209. When you arrive at the hotel you are encouraged to park in the green lot in front of the Hotel. See this map.
