THE STRANGEST PLANT IN THE WORLD
January 18, 2018
Dr. Lytton Musselman, Mary Payne Hogan Professor of Botany at Old Dominion University, will speak on “The Strangest Plant in the World” at the meeting of the John Clayton Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society. Dr. Musselman’s research over the past five decades has centered on parasitic flowering plants, especially those that cause extensive crop damage in semi-arid regions of the world. This work has resulted in many publications. Among the publications his more local research interests have produced are “The Quick Guide to Wild Edible Plants”, and the field guide, “Plants of the Chesapeake Bay”, each coauthored with one of his students. In his talk, Dr. Musselman will use a bizarre “mystery plant” (he hasn’t yet divulged its name to us!) to lead us into the wonders of lifestyle strategies of cannibalistic plants! He will also highlight some of the parasitic flowering plant species that occur right here in Virginia. NEW MEETING PLACE: The meeting will be held at 7 pm in the fellowship hall of King of Glory Lutheran Church, 4897 Longhill Road (between the entrances to Williamsburg West/Ford’s Colony and Wellspring United Methodist Church, a short distance east of the 7-Eleven at the Longhill/Olde Towne Rd. intersection.)

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Ongoing
National Historical Park (consisting of the National Park Service at Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown Battlefield) continues its mission, preserving and protecting the interests of the public since 1930. The Park operates two visitor centers and several historic homes. However, like all national parks, Colonial relies heavily on volunteers. Perhaps a sign of the times, but volunteerism is not as prevalent as it once was. But, you have a chance to change that trend at Colonial. A need exists for regular volunteers four hours a day, one day a week, orienting visitors to the park and the area. We also need volunteers to conduct tours for the public and operate historic homes. There is something for everyone. So, consider becoming a steward of your wonderful national parks, and begin at Colonial National Historical Park, (Historic Jamestowne or Yorktown Battlefield) by contacting Mike Byrd at 757-898-2422.
