Programs in March and April


What species is that tree?  Calling all BUDDING arborists... There's more than one way to identify a tree species.  Please join us as Dr. Bruce Gilman demonstrates how to identify tree species when they are without leaves.  This is an indoor presentation at FLCC room C220 beginning at 10:00 AM on Saturday, March 28, 2015

Directions to FLCC C220:  The easiest way to locate room C220 will be to park in the southeast corner of the main parking lot "A" of FLCC.  Walk along Laker Lane on the sidewalk to the east side of the Student Center.  Enter the building at the SECOND (southeast) entrance (building 8) just past the loading dock "C".  Look for signs at the southeast corner of the parking lot and near the blue light to turn to enter the building.


On Friday, April 17, 2015 we will get together at 6:00 PM to enjoy our annual potluck dinner and meeting followed by Steve Lewandowski's Frozen Lake presentation.

Meet at Saint John's Episcopal Church, 183 North Main Street, Canandaigua (enter through Saint John's Court off Howell Street).  Bring a dish to pass and place settings for yourself and any friends that you invite along.  At 7:00 PM Steve Lewandowski will share his insights about Canandaigua Lake Frozen in History.

Our 2015-16 Canandaigua Botanical Society printed programs will be available this evening for an annual membership fee of $7 ($10/family)

A note from February:   As I was working on ideas for our 2015-16 program, I encountered a flyer at the Wood Library advertising this Cornell Cooperative Extension program:

Invasive Species Public Workshop
Wednesday February 25, 2015 6:00 pm -8:00 pm Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County 480 North Main Street, Canandaigua, NY

A public workshop on invasive species will be hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management, and the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Association.

Invasive species such as giant hogweed and hydrilla are causing harm to ecosystems, the economy, and human health in the Finger Lakes region. Learn how to identify, report and manage these damaging species. The workshop will focus in particular on the invasive forest pest hemlock wooly adelgid, which was recently confirmed in the Canandaigua Lake watershed.

Fee: No charge
