The recently formed Alberta Lepidopterists' Guild has a very similar
philosophy and activities. We are joined by a shared interest in Leps - with
both collectors and non-collectors and even non-leppers in the group.
Academics, Civil Servants, senior citizens, students, et al.  For a mere
$10.00 (Canadian yet) you CAN become a member Alex. This will get you a seat
at the moth sheet and access to a cold one, should you so desire.

Gary Anweiler, President, Alberta Leidopterists' Guild
