I will be arriving in McAllen late in the afternoon of Tues. Nov. 17.  I 
will be meeting with a real estate developer who is considering donating 
land to NABA for use in creating a world-class butterfly garden.  
Although the odds that this will go through probably aren't high, it's 
certainly worth trying to make happen.  I will be in McAllen from Tues 
through Sat. Nov. 21, leaving on Sun. the 22nd.  Maybe we can get 
together at some point during that time.  I'd love to talk with you 
about the Santa Ana article (preferable in the evening) or you can join 
me in the field if you would like.  I will be staying at the Hampton Inn 
in McAllen (tel 682-4900) and you can reach me there or leave a message 
for me. Did the Isabella's Heliconian ever reappear?
Best wishes,
Jeff Glassberg
