I'll be there and will have copies of my two self-published books available to purchase:
Butterflies of the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area on sale for $50
I do not have extra copies of my co-authored book with Bob Pyle, Butterflies of the Pacific Northwest, so please consider purchasing from a local bookstore!
When: Saturday and Sunday, October 13-14
Where: Cordley Hall on the OSU campus in Corvallis, Oregon.
Time: people usually start trickling in to room 1070 around 8 AM Saturday morning. Everyone meets upstairs in room 2113 at 10 AM for welcome, announcements and season reports.
Hotels are probably booked up by now, but if you're within driving distance consider coming for the day on Saturday, October 13.
This year's schedule has not been posted yet, but it follows the same times/rooms each year, only the topics change. Check out last year's schedule on pages 4-5 of this bulletin, it includes a map of the location:
|Each year there is a different "group of focus", people bring their specimens illustrating that group to spark all kinds of discussions. This year the emphasis is on Phyciodes (crescents), Chlosyne (checkerspots, like Hoffman's) and all skippers.|
|People bring their specimens to discuss taxonomic work, to get help with identifications, or just for the fun of letting other people admire them.|
|Inside the arthropod collections at OSU, there is an "open house" Saturday afternoon for those interested in viewing the collection.|
|Autumn in Corvallis is a beautiful time to visit!|
