December Social Meeting 12/11

It’s time again for our next social gathering! We will get together on Sunday December 11th at 3:00pm for socializing and talking carnivorous plants. This time we will get together at Harriet Brewing Company.

3036 Minnehaha Ave

Harriet is closing its doors soon so this could be your last chance to visit.

Last Minute Venue Change!!!!

With sincere apologizes, we would like to announce that the venue for tomorrow’s meeting (Sunday, 13 November at 3pm) has been changed out of necessity.  We will now be meeting on the Saint Paul Campus of the University of Minnesota.  We’ll be meeting in the Ecology Building located here.  The door will be locked, but we’ll have someone there from 2:50pm until 3:10pm, they will be able to direct you to room 150 where we will meet.

Parking is not often enforced on the weekends on the Saint Paul Campus, but if you park in the contract lot, ticking is a risk.  Contained within the loop contract lot, there is a pay lot, located right across from the entrance to the building in lot SC106.

Again, we are terribly sorry for this change and hope it is not an inconvenience for anyone.  Thank you for your understanding!
