May 30th at Brian Perkins' house in Wilmington NC, 11 am - 7pm. -- Carolina Killifish Club meeting. Open to everyone with even a passing interest in killies, those who want to learn more about these fish, obtain new stock, and enjoy a day outing to collect and view native fish, & view wild orchids and carnivorous plants native to eastern NCin their natural setting. We will start at around 11am in Wilmington and carpool out to the sites. That gives folks as far away as Richmond or Charlotte enough time to make their way out for this special guided tour of the Green Swamp Nature Conservancy Preserve led by Fritz Rohde, long time resident and local native fish and orchid expert.
After the orchid walk and fish collecting, return to my home for BBQ. We will supply all the fixins, munchies and drinks, but please bring a dessert or salad to share, and something to BBQ! After the BBQ I plan to give a short presentation on the killies of Peru as we understand them to date, and have plenty of wild Peruvian fish (killies, cichlids, catfish, etc) for you to bid in the auction. If there is a particular Corydoras, Apistogramma, or Cichlid you are looking for, you can review the preorder list, place an order with me, and then buy your fish at the meeting. If you want to bring a tent and camp out, we have room in the rear yard for this, we could probably accommodate a couple of RV's if that is more your style.
