>From a mail Julie Moore sent out:

I think we need a special outing something in Larry's honor that is
more widely announced than our regular spring outings. And something in
late April or May or even June to look at maturing/fruiting specimens..
And to a place that is easily accessible with good parking. At the
moment I don't have any place in mind. Do you have any ideas? Can query
the BSW folks about an appropriate place before the next meeting , then
we can discuss in depth at the March 6 regular BSW meeting. We can also
discuss the idea of an annual Larry Morse Field Trip.

Roosevelt Island is a good possibility but as you say, weedy. I have
fond memories of a trip in the Potomac Gorge when we walk around on the
rocks looking at disjunct species. Any other places you would suggest?
