DISC members got a behind the scenes look on September 13 at Delaware Botanic Gardens at Pepper Creek. Our members toured the newly planted meadows, woodlands, and shorelines where we discussed restoration, invasive species control, and techniques used by the horticulturalists.
In lieu of our all-day conference normally held in October, DISC will be holding a half-day meeting on February 15, from 9am-1pm at the Delaware Department of Agriculture. Our tentative agenda includes three speakers and lunch will be catered by Mission BBQ. We are still working on DDA pesticide credits for these speakers and will advertise them once awarded. This meeting will also serve as DISC’s Annual Business Meeting and will include a vote on a new slate of board members and a change to our by-laws (see proposed changesHERE). DISC by-laws state our slate of nominations must go out for review 30 days prior to the Annual Meeting date. For your consideration, the nominations are below.
