Greetings -

It's that time again.  Annie Schmidt, Cindy Liberton, Ray Wunderlich, and I will be pleased to host the Executive Committee meeting in the Tampa area. 

We'll be meeting at the Brooker Creek Preserve (map to follow) on June 16 at 10 am.  The preserve has a very nice meeting room, and overnight housing is available (bunkhouse).  Both Annie and I would be pleased also to invite those who need overnight accommodations to stay with us -- Annie lives in Lutz, I live in Thonotosassa.  There is a Hampton Inn about 10 minutes from the site.  Plan to bring your lunch -- while takeout can be found, it won't be convenient.

Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center                       
Auditorium  3940 Keystone Road                                                           
Tarpon Springs, FL 34688      (727) 453-6800       

After the meeting, Annie will lead us on a tour.  I'm attaching a link to info on Brooker Creek (http://www.friendsofbrookercreekpreserve.org/about_the_preserve.htm which has lots of good information about the preserve including directions: http://www.friendsofbrookercreekpreserve.org/Directions.pdf
