Check this out – the RARE one!
Brian LeNeve gave us some updated information about the success of the Monterey Chapter’s wildflower show:
We finally got the wildflower pretty much put away, still some paper work, but I thought you would like to know some numbers of the 53rd annual wildflower show.
We had 661 taxa.
There were 4,800 people pass by the electric counter. This is 1800 more than the best before which was the 50th show.
There were 17 new plants to the show. Some of this is because of misidentifying a plant before and now realized what it was.
We now have 9 new members.
We sold over $2,000.00 worth of books and posters.
There were 32 different members participate either collecting or set up.
If this show is like the others we will have combined for driving 2,500 miles and donated 973 hours.
By any way you look at it another great show.
This note is from Brian LeNeve, Monterey chapter of CNPS on their successful Wildflower show: “I am still having a hard time getting my head around the number of people that attended this year.
According to the counter on the front door there were, 4,800 people cross the door during the three days. The museum does not account for people going in and out multiple times or two people entering at the same time, but it is the same system used for quite a while and it reflects the same inaccurate counting every year so we can use it as an indicator. The best year before this the counter showed 3,000. I still do not have an accurate count of taxa in the show but my hand count showed 667 and I am usually off 5 or 10 either way. The final count will be when we count the cards.”
Congratulations to the team. It was a beautiful show.
