      Next Meeting
      Date: Tuesday, October 2nd 7:00 PM
      Speaker: Carol Sheffield
      Topic: Field Book Project
      Flyer for Posting is here: http://botsoc.org/oct12.pdf

      Carolyn Sheffield, Project Manager of the Field Book Project, will be
      discussing the project and some of its highlights.

      She will be speaking first and the business part of our meeting will take
      place after her talk. We have a number of things to discuss: Larry
      Morse's memorial service, mugs/gifts for the speakers, future officers,
      etc.

      Here is part of an email that I sent out to my local Audubon Society:

      Canal at Big Slackwater - Mums and Potatoes - NYC Artist turns Rancher -
      Butterflies + Moths - Hiring Sheep to save money

      +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

      Today, I decided to take a little trip over to Dam #4 to see how things
      were. I found that the newly repaired portion of the Canal that's been
      closed for decades is now open!!! The "Closed" sign was still up at the
      upriver end of the detour, but it was only because no one had gotten there
      to take it down. The ribbon-cutting ceremony is to take place on October
      13 at 10 a.m. See this page for lots of photo albums of before, during and
      after pictures. http://www.candocanalbigslackwater.com/3/gallery.htm

      On my way there, I noticed a farm on Woburn Rd. just before the
      intersection with Dam Number 4 Road which advertised Mums and Potatoes for
      sale. I decided to stop there on my way back to have a look and was so
      glad I did. Never have I seen such an amazing variety of mums for sale,
      all grown there on site. Though I don't have any room for more plants, I
      ended up getting a couple anyway which I'll try to squeeze in
      somewhere.... They're open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Approximately
