Field Trip to the University of California in Davis

Please join us on a fun field trip on Saturday May 17th instead of our usual May meeting!  We will be getting a personal tour of the UC-Davis Botanical Conservatory by the head of the conservatory, as well as a visit to their nursery where many interesting plants will be for sale.

Most of us will be traveling together by bus, but you're welcome to drive yourself if you prefer.  The bus will be departing San Jose at 7:30am from the VTA Park n Ride on Camden Ave at Highway 85.  There will be refreshments on the bus, but you will need to bring a bag lunch.  Adult beverages are allowed.  The tour begins at 10am.  We should be back in San Jose by 5pm.

If you haven't yet reserved a spot on the bus, or if you have questions, please contact Sonia Dyer at or 408-629-5735.
