The December 2-4 Chapter Council meeting will held in Berkeley.

The Saturday night banquet requires pre-registration. A talk on “The first land plants: the diversity and distribution of bryophytes in California” will be given by Jim Shevock.

We have two Sunday afternoon field trips:
1. Botanic Garden at Tilden Regional Park: bryophytes will be included along with vascular plants displaying our evolving definition of the California Floristic Province. Leader:

2. Redwood Regional Park: bryophytes on trees, soil and deadwood, the must-know genera of mosses (etc.) for every well-rounded Bay Area naturalist. Leader:

These events (and others) are open to the membership. Nearer to the meeting, find details and register at
