On Sunday, November 1, BAEE board members and guests met at the home of Esther Carpi, BAEE Vice President. The group discussed plans for various upcoming activities and new projects for the coming year.
Since publication of the BAEE book, Native Plants of the Mid Atlantic, in February 2014, members have presented 17 lectures about the book and the importance of using native plants to local groups. These groups have included the Virginia Native Plant Society, Master Gardener organizations, garden clubs, the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, and, most recently, the Cosmos Club.
Board member Pamela Mason will speak at Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, MD, on November 8. Pamela's painting of Sarracenia purpurea shown here appeared in the BAEE book.
