Turn onto Nicodemus Rd. and the PPD Operations Center will come up on your right in about a quarter mile. It is in the renovated farm buildings and has an old silo out front.
Members will meet at the conference room at the Operations Center at 10:00 am to attend the annual business meeting. In the afternoon (1:00 pm), there will be a workshop going over the basics of lichens, mosses and liverworts. The workshop will be geared towards beginners looking to learn more about cryptogams.
There will likely be some intermission time between the business meeting and the workshop where people are free to explore Morgan Park as well as the Operations Center itself with PPD staff.
Hope to see you there!
