Annual Meeting 2017


The Annual Meeting for Friends of Runnymede Park is held each year on the second Sunday in March.
Members are encouraged to attend and the evening begins with light refreshments and time to socialize.
According to our bylaws, we elect new members to the Board of Directors at this meeting.  The brief
business meeting is followed by a program, usually a guest speaker on a nature related topic.

Sunday, March 12, 2017   7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Artspace, 750 Center Street, Herndon

"Scaly-winged Transformers" with guest speaker Dr. David Adamski

No, they're not a hot new toy.  They are what entomologists call insects that undergo a complete metamorphosis in their life cycle - from egg, to larva, to pupa, to adult.  In other words, butterflies, moths and skippers, many of which live in our park.  Dr. Adamski's talk will be a preview of what is to come in Spring in Runnymede Park.

During over 27 years with the US Department of Agriculture's Systematic Entomology Laboratory, Dr. Adamski has contributed to the scientific understanding of over 550 species of moths, especially night-flying ones.  Now retired, Dr. Adamski is a Research Assistant with the Department of Entomology at the Smithsonian.
