I finalized our 4th Quarter Meeting plans with Poverty Point just a couple of hours ago. It’s going to be a great day. Here’s the skinny:MeetingWe will be met by a Park Ranger who will give us some background on the site, answer our questions and lead us on a hike. Our own Roselie Overby will teach us a thing or two about birds and edible plants. She has helped Poverty Point in this role many times.

We will begin our 4th Quarter Meeting no later than 4 p.m., and, although I try to keep meetings to a half hour, we do tend to run over a few minutes. We will end no later than 4:45 because the Park closes at 5 p.m. I want us to be well out of the way so staff can do what they need to do and get out on time.

I do realize that 1:30 p.m. is a bit early for those of us who have a ways to drive. I myself will have to hit the road immediately at the end of my Sunday morning obligations. If you absolutely cannot make it by 1:30, come as soon as you can. We’ll be there and most likely won’t begin our hike until 2 or 2:15 p.m.

We will meet outdoors under a pavilion if weather permits; if not, there’s an indoor space we can use. Please bring your own water, snacks and whatever else you need to spend a few hours outdoors, as you are accustomed to doing. Here’s hoping for glorious weather to explore this amazing site.

Closer to the time, I’ll post Kim Paxton’s t-shirt designs, and I just realized I have another idea I really want her to work on. For the moment, enjoy another shot from our fun ULM Biological Station BioBlitz a couple of Saturdays ago.
