      The globally-rare Magnolia Bogs are a characteristic component of the pine
      barrens communities (themselves globally-rare) that occur along the fall
      line more or less from the Baltimore area southward to the Fredericksburg,
      Virginia area, with the greatest concentration in the
      Laurel-D.C.-Franconia area.  They are considered ancient outliers of the
      New Jersey Pine Barrens northern coastal plain pineland communities.


      Meeting location: Cathy Kerby Room (Room CE-340), Smithsonian Institution,
      National Museum of Natural History, 10th St. and Constitution Avenue NW,
      Washington, DC. Use the Constitution Avenue entrance; wait to be escorted
      up. All are welcome. As usual, light refreshments will be served prior to
      and after the presentation.

      Pre-meeting dinner: 5:30 P.M. at the Elephant & Castle Pub and Restaurant,
      1201 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington. Phone 202-347-7707. The
      restaurant is diagonally across from the Old Post Office Pavilion at 12th
