Meeting Agenda:

  • during the course of this coming year, we will review and discuss the contents of the

    We will start this project at the Feb-2020 meeting with the North American Collection.
    if you want to prepare in advance, you can use this link, and scroll down to the thumbnail pictures;
    then click on the 1st picture to see a slide show of all trees in the North American exhibit
    … note that if you hover the mouse cursor over the image, relevant info will be displayed.
    At the meeting, we will ask those present to select their favorite 5 trees of the 63 trees in this exhibit; collate the results, then review / discuss the group’s favorites. Here is a “cheat-sheet” of thumbnails, and the polling form we will use to collect attendees’ top-5. Suggestions for “homework” in advance of the meeting can be found on page 4 of the newsletter.
  • Ikebana presentation has been deferred to March
