Two of our very popular speakers are returning this year as well as a newcomer. Donna Kronenberger and Bob Henn were so well received at last Spring's workshop that we invited them to come back.

Henn will continue his discussion of Ohio's Wildflowers. Robert is a Professor Emeritus at Sinclair Community College in Dayton.
