Annual Meeting 2017

Our Vice President, Michael Hagebusch has been busy prepping for the next annual meeting.  The venue willl be the Siskiyou Mountains and environs.  The following is from Michael;
 
'Kathy )Pyle) and I met in Weed on Monday to explore venues for next summer.  The date is set for the weekend of July 21-23.
 
We stopped at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed.  They can furnish meeting rooms, labs, and place for registration in their science lab.  We will explore what they have to offer for a banquet, whether the college food service could handle it or if we would need to have it catered.  Kathy also knew of the Stewart Mineral Springs resort on the road to Mt. Eddy.  It has cabins available but meeting space is limited.  There are 5 motels in Weed.
We attempted to go to the trailhead for Mt. Eddy, but were stopped by 4 inches of snow on the road, 1000 feet below it.
 
Dana York is set as one of the field trip leaders and Kathy has contacted a retired Forest Service botanist as another.  I'll contact Dean Taylor (noted CA botanist) to see if he would be willing to lead a trip or be the featured speaker.  He worked with Jim Reveal on Eriogonums. 
 
Field trips would probably be to Scott Mountain (6 Eriogonums), Scott Vallley, and Mt. Eddy, all serpentine areas.  We'll consider alternatives in our planning.'
