We’re hoping for better weather this month for WABC field trips and other activities. There’ve been some changes in the schedule, so check the revised schedule using the link in the nav bar at the top of this page.
Here are some highlights:

May 22 –ANS field trip to Linden VA, Blue Mountain [Audubon Naturalist Society field trip; register at http://www.audubonnaturalist.org]
May 28-29–WABC had planned a weekend excursion, but many of our members asked that we reconsider holding this event over a holiday weekend when they were already scheduled for family or other events. Meantime, a number of WABC members who also are active in the Maryland Native Plant Society opted to join MNPS and the PA Native Plant Society for an exploration of Tannersville Bog and environs in Tannersville, PA.
