We’ll briefly go over 2018 sampling results for both the Entero sampling and WAVE sampling, and have signups and training for 2019 Roe Jan sampling.

The main speaker at the meeting will be Conrad Vispo of the Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology program. His presentation is titled  “Waterways through some Insect Eyes” and it promises to be a beautiful and interesting talk about dragonflies and how they relate to waterways.
