Dear members and friends,
At the October meeting a large crowd was treated to a wonderful presentation
by Suzy Ludwig, chapter vice-president, about the ferns
she grows at home. Suzy brought enough ferns to fill two large tables and
talked about each one, discussing its cultural
requirements and how it has grown for her. She also brought ferns and
beautiful fern pots for sale. Thank you, Suzy, for an excellent
program, and thanks also to Bonnie McKenzie for a wonderful job organizing
the silent auction of the plants.
For our next meeting, December 4, 10 am - 1 pm, Ill give a short talk about
my summer experiences with ferns in Costa Rica. Oliver
Sacks was also with me on that trip for one week at the La Selva Biological
Station, a lowland rainforest; Ill show you some of the
interesting ferns we saw there. For our main program, members of the Guild
of Natural Science Illustrators, Greater New York Chapter, will show us
their original botanical artwork and explain some of the techniques they use
to create it. It should be a terrific
