Wax Myrtle Morella cerifera on a Native Plant Society Walk at Little Creek Reservoir in James City, VA

Please join us at our first meeting of the year. Our speaker will be Joey Thompson, who will discuss his research findings with respect to the recent increase in cover of native wax myrtle (Myrica cerifera), on several barrier islands. Joey graduated from William & Mary with a degree in biology in 2014 and received his Master’s in biology from VCU in 2016. He currently works in Richmond for the engineering firm VHB, where he conducts natural resource surveys for rare plants, natural communities, and wetlands.

The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. 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 and a short distance east of the 7-Eleven at the Longhill/Olde Towne Rd. intersection).
