Speaker: Fernando Rivadavia

Title: Carnivorous Plants - Then, Now, and the Future
Synopsis: Fernando has explored carnivorous plants in the wild for 30 years. Some sites he has visited regularly over the decades. How have these changed? He also recently visited sites he hasn't seen in 25 years. How did these look? Were they the same? Better? Worse? Has climate change impacted the area?

Come to the BACPS meeting on 8/17 and find out!

Please carpool or arrive early - traffic will be very heavy. Arrive to Sebastopol between 10 and 11 and explore the town first. California Carnivores is going to have a nursery sale also, so come early to pick out a new addition for your collection.
Bring a dish to share - appetizers, entrees, side dishes, desserts, drinks are all welcome. 

The weather should be quite warm, so please dress accordingly and bring a hat, water bottle, and sunscreen!
