WE WILL HAVE A NOVEMBER MEETING on Thursday, November 15th at noon with a presentation by David Bryant, a Wildlife Biologist with a Co-Op program under the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Virginia State Game and Inland Fisheries Service and Virginia Tech. It will be about his grassland restoration work and the steep decline in birds and pollinators. It will be a very interesting program. We will also elect new officers for next year.

In late afternoon of Thursday, August 30, 2018, Beth Kendrick and I planted a Goldenclub in the pond off the 12th hole at ICYCC. Goldenclub [Orontium aquaticum] is one of the Northern Neck’s quirky native plants that in my travels, I have not seen growing.
