| | Next Meeting on Saturday 6/4
Seeing as there was a big thunderstorm that rained out our scheduled May 21 meeting, we're now planning a meting for Saturday, Jun. 4th at 2pm. We'll be meeting in George Bennett Park on Roxbury Rd. (Rte. 67) in Southbury, where we shall hopefully be able to get our grubby paws on some neat hardscape items (the sycamore roots there are to die for) and maybe even some crayfish! Be sure to bring nets, buckets, specimen containers, bags, etc.
Afterwards, if we don't get too preoccupied with the hardscape, we'll be stopping by nearby Transylvania Pond to see if there are any neat native plants, or, barring that, have a nice walk around the waterfront.
Since Michael will still busy globe trotting and looking at wild plants in jungles and such (we are, of course, all insanely jealous!) I'll be running this show.
Also, feel free to bring snacks and such if you want to picnic by the Pomperaug River in Bennett Park.
