Weekend Update

A couple of events I missed in compiling this week's list...

Just announced: the Mycological Association of Washington will be looking for mushrooms in Greenbelt Park on Saturday at 10:00. There are always a couple of real experts on these forays, so it's a great opportunity to learn something new, no matter what your experience level. With all this rain we've been having, there's sure to be plenty to look at! We're hoping to make it out on this one.

The American Horticultural Society is holding a Community Green festival on Sunday at River Farm in Alexandria (entry $10 adults/kids 3+ $5/bicyclists free). Local gardening coach Susan Harris will give a talk on removing your turfgrass at noon. Local photographer Don Chernoff will be giving a slide show at 3:00 with pictures from his book, Wild Washington: Amazing Wildlife In and Around Our Nation's Capital.
