Our first meeting of the year will be January 16 in the Beaumont Room of the Missouri Botanical Garden's Ridgeway Center, 4344 Shaw Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63110. The Beaumont Room is on your right immediately after you enter Ridgway Center (Main Visitor's Center). Free parking is available on the Garden parking lots. Need directions? Find them here. Meetings begin at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted in the Calendar. Our meetings are open to the public and everyone is welcome.

Our speaker for the evening will be Josh Hetley, on the topic "Pond Construction: Pros, Cons, and Pitfalls". Josh is a self-proclaimed filtration junkie, obsessing on water quality to grow large show koi and the construction methods that help people meet these goals. In his talk he will highlight some of the many methods used to build koi ponds--their pros, cons, and potential pitfalls. He will also be touching on a hypothetical build with cost comparisons based on the different techniques.
