The Adirondack Botanical Society Meets

The fall meeting of the Adirondack Botanical Society met on December first at the APA office in Ray Brook.  Fourteen people attended and discussed the future plans of the society, especially the field trips for the upcoming field season as well as some ID workshops that could be done in the winter.  Go to their website, adkbotsoc.org, for more information when it is posted.  You can also join their Google Group by  sending an email to  adkbotsoc+subscribe(at)googlegroups.com. Write Join in the subject line. You can state why you would like to join in the body of the email. After the meeting the group walked to a nearby bog where they could still see the state rare pod grass, Scheuchzeria palustris, poking its fruits up through the snow.  We can’t wait for next year’s field trips!
