Where: Field Trips are for members only. Please check your newsletter or contact us for the address.
This is the first of our workshop/field trips. Various members (and perhaps some outside experts) will share their mostly gentle ways of handling invasions. If you have found a solution that you want to share, definitely let us know and we will slot you in ( no bazookas, please)!
Also, please do not bring samples of your critters to the meeting. We do NOT want to infest our gracious hosts’ yard. If you have a problem you want help with, take a clear photo and send to https://www.whatsthatbug.com/ask-whats-that-bug/. Once you have an ID we can brainstorm at the meeting.
Please DO bring samples of whatever you have ripening right now for our fruit calendar. Also snacks to share and plants to sell would be nice.
As you may have noticed at our last meeting, we have decided to follow the LA Chapter’s lead and substitute the Silent Auction format for Plant Raffles. The selling and then drawing of tickets just became too cumbersome, especially at the Culver City location where we had to be out of the room precisely at noon. Member Jane Coogan Beer will be supplying us with a handy sign-up sheet for each item. The minimum starting price will be on it. If you have signed up for a plant, please listen for the announcements at 11:50 (Last Call) and 11:55 (Auction Closed) so you can claim your prize if you have won. If the top bidder doesn’t respond to the Closing Announcement, the item will go to the next highest bidder.
