St. Louis Chapter Meeting – July 26, 2017
Our speaker will be Aaron Floden, the new Midwest and Missouri botanist at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Please welcome Aaron to our St. Louis community of botany enthusiasts as he introduces himself and talks about his background and his plans for the Flora of Missouri Project. Time will permit asking questions and to enjoy informal discussion with other members over light refreshments. Please join us at 5:30 pm for dinner with Aaron or at 7:30 pm for the meeting.
Please note that our meeting will be in the City Hall, rather than our usual room in the Community Center. (Directly across the parking lot, closer to Lindbergh Blvd.)
Come join us for our fall meeting. Meeting activity TBD. All are welcome to attend!
Come join us for a woodland walk through Maple Woods Natural Area. We will meet in the parking lot off of NE 76th Street at 10:00am to enjoy the fall colors and late blooming flowers found in this National Natural Landmark. Aptly named, Maple Woods is abundant with sugar maples that will hopefully provide us with some spectacular fall colors! The area includes an easy walking path. Please RSVP to Hilary at email@example.com by October 5.
Directions to Maple Woods Natural Area from the Missouri Department of Conservation website:
