Thursday Evening Presentations and Activities –

Beginning 2018, we are moving to just two evening meetings per semester (we normally track the school year) and placing greater emphasis on field trips. We will also spread the location around three different Stillwater venues, so please be sure to check here for locations. Thursday evening meetings and presentations will be held in the Education Center of the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University, at the Stillwater Public Library, and at Hideaway Pizza.

PrintVisitors to the Botanic Garden can access the grounds via the South Entrance on Rt. 51.  Better for evening programs, we will arrange to have the gate at the North Entrance (accessed by Virginia Avenue) open after hours.  Parking will be available in lot “parking A” on the above map.
