The April Meeting will be on April 11, 2015 at 10 AM in Balboa Park, Casa del Prado, in Room 104. “Bromeliads in Ecuador: the Puyas” will be the subject of a talk by Betty Patterson. Her presentation will consist of slides and information from many trips to Ecuador. Betty has furnished the information below so that we may know a little about her: I am a musician that played with the Dallas Symphony for 45 years. I started going to Ecuador in 1985 & have been there over 30 times. I translated Jose Manzanares book about the bromeliads of Ecuador and I traveled with him on many many collecting trips I'm also interested in training dogs. I have 2 wire-haired dachshunds & a wire-haired pointing grifon. Now that I am retired I can travel & enjoy other activities such as hiking & reading.
