Calendar

Evening programs are free, public programs on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May, offered online via Zoom. Program begins at 7:30 p.m. Find the link to register for them on the home page of this website each month as the date approaches.

Outings are open to everyone, not just members. All levels of expertise, from beginners to experienced botanizers, are welcome. Address questions about physical requirements to the leader. It is wise to contact the leader before the trip, in case plans change.  We follow county covid advice regarding masks and group size.

(Please ignore the warning about inadequate permission. We are working on removing it.)
