ANNOUNCING A CHANGE (weather permitting) to the August meeting venue.

The meeting will be, as usual, held at 7PM on the 4th Wednesday (August 24). Our plan is to conduct the meeting in the Wildlife Observation Blind along the Universal Pedestrian Trail at the Morosini Reserve. Since there is no internet, the meeting will be in-person only. 

Should the weather be uncooperative and rainy, the meeting will be held at our usual location at the Delmont Library.

We invite you to join us!

10AM Saturday, October 8. McGinnis Reserve lot on Hunter Drive. 

The McGinnis Reserve is home to all sorts of interesting flora. It boasts large colonies of the autumn-blooming Witch Hazel, a native shrub known for its medicinal qualities. 

The group will leave the parking lot at 10AM and follow the blue trail to the meadow and into the woods. The delicate yellow blooms are a lovely addition to the colors of the autumn leaves!
