   Just wanted to remind everyone that the West Coast Chapter of the 
International Aroid Society will be having a little get-together at the 
UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley this coming Sunday 4/11 starting around 

   We'll be meeting in the conference center down by the tropical house, 
and we'll be having Dylan Hannon from the Huntington Botanical Gardens 
give a talk on Colombia and some of the many Aroids therein.  Colombia 
is right in the center of tropical Aroid diversity, and has been a 
difficult place to visit, so Dylan's talk will be an unique opportunity 
to learn more about this fascinating area.  Dylan also mentioned he 
would be bringing a few plants from the collection at the Huntington to 
share.  Refreshments will be provided, and as usual some choice and rare 
Aroids will be made available for sale - proceeds going to the garden.

   More information and photos of past meetings are available at

   You do not have to be a member of the IAS to attend this meeting - 
all interested parties are welcome to join us.  Be sure to mention that 
you are attending the Aroid meeting at the entry kiosk.

   If you have any questions or wish to donate plants to sell, please 
contact Albert Huntington at 
<> for more information.  Hope to see you there!
