Annual Meeting 2017

Weed, California, July 21-23, 2017

Hello all, we will be meeting in northern California, operating out of Weed (yes) and exploring three counties:  Shasta, Siskiyou and Trinity.  The Annual Meeting will focus on the serpentine-affinity species, especially on Mount Eddy, Scott Valley and Scott Mountain.


We will start Friday July 21st with a Board Meeting, registration, a social gathering, and back by popular demand, an Eriogonum identification class session at the  college led by Dr. Ben Grady.  New this year, a panel discussion including Jennifer Jewell (local garden show host who interviewed Hugh and Bob several years ago) will be held on eriogonums in the garden. She wants to interview us about the Society. Ben, Hugh and yet to be named members will be the interview subjects. John Whittlesey (owns a native plant nursery in Chico) might be another possible speaker.


Saturday and Sunday will be field trip days.  The banquet will be held as usual on Saturday night and we will have a speaker as well that night.  As in the past, a Monday optional field trip is planned; updates should be forthcoming shortly.


Kathy Pyle and Michael Hagebusch have been busy documenting the field trips and eriogonum locations.  A list of eriogonums found and trip details are forthcoming.


We have arrangements with the College of the Siskiyous (COS) to use rooms in a dorm, the Juniper Lodge, for a very nominal charge of $50/room.  There are only 20 rooms available, each can accommodate up to three people.  The rooms do not have bathrooms but rather, two restrooms, one each at the ends of the hallway.  If you use this on campus option, we will collect room charges via registration (online or mail in) and the society will manage the financial relationship with COS. A schematic of the floor plan at Juniper Lodge will be available on the website soon.


If you prefer to make your own arrangements rather than the dorm, Weed has several hotels/motels, but hurry, this is a popular venue in the summer!  Click here to see lodging options in Weed.
