Please join us on Tuesday, October 16  to hear Karl Steyaert and Jason

The program begins at 7:30 and takes place at the Matthei Botanical Gardens,
located at 1800 Dixboro Road between Plymouth and Geddes.

We also invite you to stay for our social hour immediately following the
presentation, when the drinks (well, the tea and coffee at least) and

so we'll have those eye-catching Sierra Club calendars
and appointment books for sale as well as gift cards for Borders Books &
Music.  And if you want to help stop sprawl (at no cost to you) while buying
groceries and other merchandise at the stores where you already shop, we'll
