Ian’s damage continues to thwart our resolve to return to our traditional meeting place, and for our meeting on Tuesday, November 8, we will meet at the North Port Library, 13800 Tamiami Trail [map]. That is the intersection of Hwy 41 and Biscayne in North Port. Meeting time is 1:30-3:30 due to a technical glitch in reservations. Our speaker is Barbara Lockhart from the Environmental Conservancy of North Port, who will speak on the topic, “Nature Conservation Starts in Your Neighborhood.” We will have our usual raffle, with prize selections as books on plants and gardening donated by our members. We are excited to start a new season and look forward to seeing all of you again. Please plan to join us!
