LARKS Newsletter Updates
The LARKS Monthly Newsletter will not be updated until restrictions on travel and gatherings are lifted. As meetings are on hold for now, and Columbia has deemed it important for us to stay home (I'm sure the state will follow suit in short order), I will not be in a position to create videos or post photos from the field, nor will there be much if any news to report. I will post new event information as it becomes available.
