  • Sara Hartzell and Aaron Druery will update us on the Wilderness Park Subarea Strategic Plan, and answer questions.
  • Dave Titterington and Ruth Sterns will present Birds of Wilderness Park, complete with photos, tips, and information on how to be a successful birder.

We’ll have some great thank-you gifts, including Wild Seasons, an indispensable handbook on wild edibles, where to find them, and how to prepare them.  Author Kay Young  will be at the event to answer your questions, and sign your copy of the book. Or choose A New Garden Ethic, recently released and signed by author Benjamin Vogt.

Cash bar, freshly prepared snacks and appetizers by Hub Cafe chefs, a wonder gathering of old friends and new. We hope to see you there!
