Make your romantic dinner plans for later in the evening, and join us first for a Valentine's Day special agenda. We especially encourage you to bring spouses, friends, children, and other (human) Valentines to this visually rich meeting. It will be a lovely Wild Ones family affair!

Excerpts from Microcosmos
This glorious 1996 French film features love and other vital life activities among and between plants, insects, gastropods, amphibians, and birds. We will show selected excerpts throughout the evening. 

Pros and Cons of Various Plant Identification Phone Apps
Focusing primarily on iNaturalist and the benefits of a citizen science approach, Doug Reith from the Washtenaw County Conservation District will share helpful insights for choosing the right plant ID app for you.

Dyeing to Be Your Valentine
Through pictures, words and examples, Sandy Kunkle will share her journey into the world of color, dyes, and prints from plants. She will be joined by Jan Frank, a fellow wanderer and traveler in this world. Both Sandy and Jan, members of the Ann Arbor chapter of Wild Ones, are making plans for spring, summer, and fall dye and print research that will involve native Michigan plants and maybe even you.
