Dear Tom, Hi, How are you and all your activities?   I haven't received any
up dates from Delta Institute at this email address and would like them to
also go to [log in to unmask]  if you are still doing them. Hope things are
busy for you down there. Thanks and take care. Candy

> Dear Natural Historians,
> The Delta Institute of Natural History (in Bowdoin, Maine) is a center for

> few. Courses generally run from 1-3 days, are usually on Fridays,
> and/or Sundays, and cost between $50 and $150 to make them accessible to
> many persons as possible. In addition to its own courses, the Institute is
> offering courses in cooperation with the New England Wild Flower Society
> (NEWFS). A schedule of the latter is expected to be released in a few
> Courses presented independently by the Delta Institute (posted at
> http://www.vfthomas.com/deltahome.htm) are:
> Salix (willow) identification - instructor George Argus - 11-13 June 2004
