Botanical Club meetings are open to the public.
Meetings begin at 7:30 PM. Unless otherwise stated, they are held at the Marvin Comisky Conference Center, Blank Rome LLP at One Logan Square (at the corner of 18th and Cherry Streets in Philadelphia). Enter from the 18th Street courtyard behind the Logan Hotel. Finding the entrance is not straightforward, so if you have not been there before, we recommend that you take a look at our map.
If you have an idea for a future program, please contact
the Program Committee chair, David Hewitt.
