    There is a Bay Area Carnivorous Plant society meeting coming up a week from Saturday! Anyone who can should come check it out. There is always a good sale, raffle, silent auctions, etc. I'll be bringing lots of stuff for trade/donation. Here's some more info:

    Location: University of California Botanical Garden, Berkeley
    Date: November 8, 2003, Saturday
    Time: 12:00 Noon
    Program: Tuan Nguyen: │From the Land of Head Hunters to the Land of Convicts: Carnivorous Plants of Borneo and Southwestern Australia"

    Follow a journey into the steamy dark jungles of Borneo, and then experience the arid contrasts of Southwestern Australia. Tuan will lead us on an exploration of the unique flora and fauna of these two isolated land masses. See habitat shots of Nepenthes campanulata, N. villosa and N. northiana. Peek into the enthralling flowers of Amorphophallus and the giant Rafflesia. Marvel at pygmy Droseras, Utricularias, Cephalotus, and native terrestrial orchids. This slide show will delight plant enthusiasts and adventure travelers alike.

    Tuan has had many years of experience growing a wide assortment of exotic plants, including carnivorous plants. He worked with Ch╣ien Lee at Malesiana Tropicals, during which time he visited remote Nepenthes sites never seen before by outsiders. Many of us have seen Tuan's artistic plant displays at the BACPS meetings. His photography was recently featured at a local show.

    An approximate meeting schedule is as follows:

    12noon - Social, Display Table, Sale
    1:00pm - Announcements and Program
    2:15pm - Show and Tell, Silent Auction, Auction
    To promote availability of interesting plants and other items, we encourage each member to bring one or two things for the raffle, silent auction, auction, or sale.

    The University Of California Botanical Garden is located on Centennial Drive above the main U.C. Berkeley campus, between the Stadium and the Lawrence Hall of Science. There is a parking fee and entrance fee. Once in the garden walk down the paved road to the meeting hall on your right hand side. For more detailed directions, please call the Information Center at 510-643-2755 or consult their website http://botanicalgarden.berkeley.edu/ or the BACPS web site www.bacps.org.
