Canandaigua Botanical Society - a disclaimer

I was invited to many Canandaigua Botanical Society events by Maya Hobday since I first moved to Canandaigua in 1999. I enjoy the walks, the presentations, the meals, and the socializing with other folks I meet at the Botanical events, yet I was often uncomfortable getting to every event. At first, I found the wealth of information to be overwhelming and intimidating. Eventually I decided to not worry about learning EVERY bit of information that was shared by the presenter or other knowledgeable members. Instead, I just enjoy the gatherings of Botanical Society folk and try to hold onto just one or two bits of information that I find particularly helpful or interesting from each event. I now look forward to getting together with the Canandaigua Botanical Society. I always learn useful information about the botanical world around us and also enjoy getting to know a bit more about other Canandaigua Botanical Society members. There’s never been a “test” of knowledge learned at a Canandaigua Botanical Society event, yet there’s always a wealth of knowledge to gain. Please come join and enjoy us! Please also know that the notes written here on our Blog offer just a glimpse of what is shared and experienced at the actual Canandaigua Botanical Society events.
