Newsletter for 2016

Emailed Announcement 3/14/2016

Hello Muhlenberg Botanical Society Members,

Club President Joan King hasn't up to planning Spring Muhlenberg Club programs and field trips due to health issues. Unfortunately the room at the museum hadn't yet been reserved for any meetings this spring. Tim Draude and I and both contacted the museum and Tim just got confirmation this past Friday that we can meet there next week. And on the other 3rd Thursdays this spring.

The meeting this Thursday (Feb 18) at 7 pm

The program will feature past-President Tim Draude explaining how and why plant seeds stay dormant and what triggers germination. Tim’s talk will be followed by a brief presentation by me of tips for successfully getting seedling from germination all the way to having them happily growing in your garden. We will have seeds of some native plants available to you to take how and raise yourselves.

We will be having a discussion about organization for the rest of the year, planning field trips and programs and getting out a newsletter, new officers. etc..

Any information about cancellation due to weather will be posted on our web sites. and

I hope to see everyone on Thursday,

Mike Slater, Muhlenberg Botanic Society Vice-President
