August 17th Meeting TOPIC is the Mint Family (Lamiaceae)

Hey folks, I have gone ahead and sponsored the website as discussed at our last meeting. With this mini version, we no longer have an events function, so announcements of future meetings will be on the blog. You may still post photos and videos, as well as use the forum for discussion. A new feature is the Plant Quiz, test the knowledge you learned from the previous meeting! Hope to see everyone there....Steve
