Deborah Canterbury, Class of 2014 – Emeritus and chapter co-founder Sally Evans reports that one of our chapter founders, Mary Lou Cole recently passed away.
Deborah Canterbury, 2011 – Several months ago the paleo lab members who had been involved for at least 6 years in preparing fossils at the Heard were assigned a tricky preparator duty. They were asked to clean sandstone, a challenge for the most advanced of preparator, from the Mosasaurus remains collected by SMU at a site in Angola, Africa.
Bob Mione, 2012 – There have been lots and lots of great photos taken of the wildflowers at the Meadow. I’ve never seen a better one than this, taken by Connie Roschlau Ball. I call this plot the “Maureen” plot, named after a friend of mine’s wife, who really loved the wildflowers of TX.
Deborah Canterbury, 2014 and Past President – More than 10,00 plants unloaded, cataloged, labeled and placed according to scientific name in 4 days for this years’ 36th Heard Plant Sale. It is one of the longest-running, largest, and best native plant sales in the state. BPTMN members play a big role in the pre-sale preparation and in helping customers choose the proper native plants for their gardens.
I found the BPTMN booth at the 2013 Learn 2 Live Green event where I was a volunteer for Live Green in Plano. So I started attending the BPTMN meetings, got to talking with members and decided that was the organization where I needed to be. I started volunteering at BPRC right off the bat as a trail guide, and I’ve been there ever since.
