This is a potluck so bring your favorite side dish.  We will provide hamburgers, water and lemonade
Please RSVP to Dick and Paula Hopkins at [email protected]

Please join us for a presentation by Bruce Alber, Forestry Specialist with Wilbur Ellis on the "why and how to control forest vegetation".  If you have a pesky plant you want to get rid of and don't know what it is, bring a color photo and we can figure out what it is then how to eliminate it.  Dick and Paula Hopkins will have their backpack sprayers with them (with chemical) to demonstrate different types of application. 

At last month's meeting, Dick and Paula Hopkins gave a presentation on why site preparation is so important to successful reforestation.  Viewing the slides from their PowerPoint presentation will help prepare you for the June meeting.

General Membership meetings are held at the Puyallup Library, 324 S Meridian, Puyallup, on the first Wednesday of February, April, and October.  Field trips and tours are planned for June and August, and the Annual Meeting and Luncheon is held in November.
