NYFA Annual Meeting and Field Trips a Success

Over twenty NYFA members enjoyed our field trips and annual meeting in the Cranberry Lake area over the weekend.  We saw many interesting plants in the beautiful poor fens of the area and after a hearty lunch provided by Ed Frantz at his camp, we elected this year’s board members including the two new members Kim Smith and Anna Stalter.  Saturday afternoon we saw old growth white pines and another interesting bog near Wanakena.  We ended our outing Sunday morning in a large, beautiful, poor fen at Hitchins Pond.  Thanks go to Anne Johnson and Bernie Carr for organizing the trips and to Ed Frantz for his hospitality at the camp.  More details will be coming in the October newsletter. See more photos at the Picasa web album.
