NJ Native Plant Society Fall Meeting, Nov 7, 2015

This looks to be good. I especially look forward to the discussion on other insects as I have had so many in my new pollinator garden. Also this is a great chance to see Douglas Tallamy, author of "Bringing Nature Home." Join the society and receive a discount on the fee. I have been to several of these meetings. They do not disappoint. I look forward to going as well.
