But this is all just for the build up that will lead to The Botany Club of COA: A place for plant enthusiasts of the MDI community to gather and enjoy botany through field excursions, Friends of the Herbarium meetings, potlucks, presentations, and other meaningful botanical events.
This is the preliminary, unrefined "mission" of the BCCOA. Maybe it should be called The COA Botanical Club? Please send me any suggestions!
Do not confuse this with the current botany club that has missed the past two meetings. This will hopefully become an official organization supported by COA and external donors that will also be open to the public. I have spoken to students and some faculty who have shown great interest for this.
I am currently working on designing a website that could hopefully be linked to the COA website. Will post more updates on this soon....
