The Joint Field Meeting is sponsored by the Botanical Society of America, 
the Torrey Botanical Society, and the Philadelphia Botanical Club. The 
2013 meeting, exploring the unique botany of the Adirondacks, will be 
based in Warrensburg, New York.

Program: We will be car pooling to close-by areas including the famous ice 
meadows which are the place to see the most native plant species in New 
York. Other trips will be to the State University Forestry Field Station 
with its unique forest and graminoid areas. Another trip is planned for 
Lake George, along the shore at Tongue Mt. This trail has limey areas with 
rich botany. There will be speakers for the four evening programs.
Housing and meals: The basic fee for meals and room will be $360 per 
person. Accommodations will be in two-person cabins with half baths but 
with showers in a separate building. We will have a few cabins with full 
baths, on a "first come, first served" basis.
