Metro Area MNWWN Quarterly Meeting

Happy Fall everyone!  I hope you’re enjoying the great weather we’ve had so far!  Our next quarterly gathering of the Metro Area Minnesota Women’s Woodland Network is scheduled for Tuesday, October 20, 2015 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at La Casita’s in Roseville.  Their address is 1925 Perimeter Road, Roseville, 55113; phone 651-287-4055.  Directions and map:  http://lacasita.biz/locations/.  I reserved our space starting at 6:30 so you can get there a bit early to have dinner or a treat!  If you can join us, please RSVP to me so that I can confirm our reservation.  Looking forward to see you!  Barb

Member Linda Haugen, who is a plant pathologist with the US Forest Service in St. Paul ,has been working on American elm with scientists from the Northern Research Station since 2005.  She will give us an update on the status of Dutch elm disease and American elm in the Midwest, the research that is being done, and what opportunities are available to land managers and owners.  We’ll have an informal presentation and an opportunity for discussion about this iconic species in our landscape.  Thanks, Linda!

For those who have expressed an interest in the Metro Area MNWWN book club, leader Ginger Kopp will arrive at 6:30pm to discuss Helen Hoover’s book “The Long-Shadowed Forest” that you've been reading (no matter how far you’ve gotten – no pressure) and then select a book for the January and April meetings (bring ideas) and explore how best to make the book club work for everyone. 

See you there!  Barb
