Conservatory of Flowers

September 21: Photosynthesis - A visit to the Conservatory of Flowers 6:30 to 8 pm

We will meet at the SF Conservatory of Flowers. It’s a year since we’ve visited and it is always great to have a short meeting to look at the plants. The Butterflies and Blooms Exhibit has been extended and who doesn’t like Butterflies and Blooms.
Did we mention the LIght Show. Take a nostalgic trip with the Summer of Love Light Show that starts at dusk and repeats on the half hour so we can watch it twice.
Time: We show arrive between 6:30 and 7pm though stragglers can tap gently on the door and I or Carl will let you in. This is a chance to bring a friend and get them hooked on broms because the East Wing is full of them.
Notes: There will be announcements at 7pm.
Show and Tell is the Conservatory with Mario Vega.
Bring beverages for yourselves and we will have a a few snacks. We won’t have our cups or plates so bring what you need. We will wind up around 8 o’clock.
