Monongahela Master Naturalist Book Club

We had an interesting discussion Friday trying to choose books for our winter reading.  Thank you for sending your suggestions.  There were so many good choices we could easily be reading into next summer but we did narrow it down to four.  They are available through Amazon.
We will be meeting Thursdays at the Ag Science building on the WVU Evansdale campus at 6pm in room G138.  Parking is available in the front of the building across from the new WVU greenhouse.  There is a microwave available if you like to bring a snack or a beverage.
