Meetings are held Saturdays in collaboration with the JC Raulston Arboretum, which co-sponsors our programs. Program begins at 10 am. 

Meetings will be in person, with concurrent live streaming for those unable to attend.  When possible, programs will also be recorded and available as online video to all chapter members. Chapter members will receive detailed information on attending and viewing our meetings via email prior to each meeting, as will JC Raulston Arboretum members.
