Joint Washington, Idaho and Oregon Chapter Meeting

This will be a joint meeting with the Washington and Idaho Chapters. Oregonian Jerry Igo will present a talk at the East Benton County Historical Society Museum on the subject of "Pacific Northwest Flowers and Plants of Lewis and Clark." The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. Following the meetings and program at the Museum, we will head over to Two Rivers Park to eat our lunches and take a hike with Mr. Igo to view some of the plants he discusses in his presentation.

Driving instructions to the East Benton County Historical Society Museum: From I-84 near Hermiston take I-82 north. Take the 395/14 exit into Kennewick. You will cross the Columbia River on the blue bridge. Follow 395/14 to its intersection with 10th Avenue. There is a Fred Meyer on one corner and a Jack-In-The-Box on another corner. Turn east onto 10th Avenue, away from Fred Meyer and towards the Jack-In-The-Box. Follow 10th Avenue to Auburn Street. Turn left (north) and then left again onto Keewaydin Drive. The East Benton County Historical Society Museum is situated by the park on the left.

Driving instructions from East Benton County Historical Society Museum to Two Rivers Park: There should be plenty of people to follow from the Museum to Two Rivers Park, but as you may want to stop at a grocery store or fast-food outlet on your way to the park, you can use the following instructions. Head back down Keewaydin Drive, towards the way you came in. Make the right (south) onto Auburn Street and go back to the intersection with 10th Avenue. Now make a left (east) onto 10th Avenue. Follow it to the junction with Chemical Drive (also marked as Hwy. 397). You will pass Sundowns Racetrack and the County Fairgrounds. At Hwy. 397 turn right. Follow it to Finley Road and turn left onto Finley Road which then continues east. Follow Finley Road until you see the sign on the left for Two Rivers Park. Make a hard left and enter the park.

10:00 a.m. East Benton County Historical Society Museum
Speaker Jerry Igo: "Pacific Northwest Flowers and Plants of Lewis and Clark"
