Birds and Trees Presentation Flew!

We had the pleasure of an hour with @BillDalton, a renowned bird expert and nature photographer. https://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/profile/17361/

The points 20190312_130451he made and examples he showed us were clear and interesting. His stories were fun to hear. 

As nature lovers, the club members and many guests and prospective new members were rapt as raptors were shown, hungry or sated. Finches and wrens took the floor as we saw their best side. And the cute little owl stole the show.

Many of our talks and presentation offer a treat and are free and open to the public. Please contact us and we will be sure to save a seat.

Stay tuned for more adventures in the garden and in the habitat as we welcome warmer weather and yet more outdoor time.

Update on our Annual Meeting and Cotton

For our members and members-to-be…

The date of our annual luncheon in June has been changed to June 18 (instead of the 11th) so please note it in your yearbook.  It will be at salt creek grille. This would allow extra time between GCNJ’s annual luncheon on June 6 and ours.  We have been given the opportunity to have a display honoring Gotti at the GCNJ luncheon and hope this date change will allow many of you to lend your support and attend their luncheon as well as ours.  More information will follow.

As some of you heard, we have access to some cotton plant seeds from Florida.  It might be fun to try them as the “Horticulture challenge” that we have in our flower show.  Although plans for a flower show and “Challenge’ are a future decision, the seeds need an early start.   Anyone interested in giving them a try, let our President know. It is best to start them indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date in our area (April 16th).  Information on how to do this is easy to find online.  They also make a good conversation piece as patio or deck container plants.
