This weekend in Wilmington will be a trial run for the 2020 CNPA Photo Weekend that the Eastern Carolina Region will be hosting. We are going to explore some natural areas to include our field trips and hopefully meet some of our Wilmington members who can’t make the trip to our monthly meetings in Greenville. Karl is our chairman for 2020 Photo Weekend and planning places to visit on our upcoming 2019 May weekend. Come and help for a day or all weekend.
