      Speaker: Julie Myers
      Topic: Invasive Species in the Washington, DC, Area
      Flyer for Posting: http://botsoc.org/may11.pdf

      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
      and Pennsylvania, a few blocks from the Museum, with Federal Triangle the
      nearest Metro station, and Metro Center also nearby.


      The Saturday following the meeting will be a trip to Plummers Island to
      help rescue the island from the invasives which are trying to take it
      over.

      Here is the information for May 8th: 

      Help remove invasive plants from Plummers Island!

      May 8th, 10-1pm, near Bethesda, MD
       

      Join The Nature Conservancy and Botanical Society of Washington on May 8th
      for a few hours of cutting invasive bittersweet vines and other exotics on
      Plummers Island, one of the most studied areas in the DC Metro region. After
      cutting the vines, a Conservancy staffer will treat the stumps with an
      herbicide to prevent resprouting. We will meet at Lock 10 and hike in
      together, but please rsvp to potomacgorgevol@... so we can expect you,
      and have enough tools, t-shirts, and snacks, and provide directions for you.
      Please bring water and a lunch, so we can enjoy lunch by the river or on top
      of the island when we finish.
