Yes, I'll be there on Friday for the CNC planning meeting! I can save it for you @karyn-nrd.

Update: We've got 27 people registered for Thursday's event, and it looks like lots of them are new to iNat, so if any of you more experienced folks want to come, it will help to spread the knowledge! @jacobogre @rock_flipper @ashley_bradford @lisam @jmgconsult @capitalnaturalist @botanygirl @calopteryx @rhondaridley @elizabeth1951 @tomarata @peggyo @bethkiser @karyn-nrd @noreenth @otorres @stephanieoberle @mmn_noriko
