The next meeting of the NECPS will be held on June 16 at 12:30 PM at the UCONN Biodiversity Education & Research Greenhouses in the Torrey Life Science building room 154.
There is a lot of construction around the building again this summer, and N. Eagleville road is closed going west in the area. It would be best if people drove onto campus via Discovery Drive from Route 44, parked in parking lot 9 (free parking on Saturday) or the North Garage (for a fee). Walk along N. Eagleville around the construction and there will be a gap in the construction fencing allowing access to Torrey Life Science.
Also a local bog walk is planned courtesy of Dr. Matt Opel.
Plans are also to hold a silent auction.
