CVBA Monthly Meetings

Time: 7:00pm

Directions: Ivy Creek Natural Area is about six miles north of Charlottesville, Va, on Earlysville Road. It is one half mile from the intersection of Hydraulic and West Rio Road. (Map)

What goes on at a monthly meeting?: Mostly we just share with each other what is working and what is not, our individual and mutual concerns and successes, ideas and hints. The meetings are a wonderful forum and opportunity for the exchange of ideas, happenings, and enthusiasm. Often we have expert speakers cover subjects of interest.
