Event participants can submit up to two photos per person of a plant for Kathy to identify on or before August 3 by emailing Sean Lahmeyer directly at firstname.lastname@example.org (Please put " BAGSC Stump Kathy" in the subject line.) This event will be recorded. Everyone who RSVP's will be able to view the recording for two weeks following the event.
Photo specifications: Plant photos must include foliage and flower, and an overview habitat shot is also required. Please include some description of the plant in your email, such as height, etc. All of the photos will be put in a presentation for Kathy to see for the first time at our BAGSC Zoom meeting.
