Tuesday, September 13th (MONDAY!), 7:00 PM PDT
Livestream at gsas.org/stream
[Though we are planning on an in-person meeting for September, our speaker is presenting remotely, so we're going to it as a livestream like the last year and a half. Join us the next day at SPU for an in-person social meeting and small auction, details to follow.]
Bailin Shaw last visited Seattle when we hosted the Aquatic Gardeners Association (AGA) in 2019. Many of you may remember his hands on presentation for developing “Wabi Kusa”. Bailin currently serves as the president of the Chicago Aquatic Plant Society and is a board member of the AGA. A hobbyist for over 35 years, he has been keeping tanks on and off since he was young. He’s been involved in the planted tank hobby since 1997. He was one of the founding members of the Oklahoma Aquarium Association, the Dallas-Fort Worth Aquatic Plant club, and the New England Aquatic Plant Society.
Bailin has published in a number of tropical fish hobby publications (including Amazonas), and has chaired numerous aquascaping competitions. He works as a scientist when not playing in his fish tanks.
Bailin's presentation will be
The Easy CO2 Aquascape - Strategies for a Medium-Tech Planted Tank. We hope
you can join us in the livestream, and ask questions for Bailin in the chat.
GSAS is cautiously returning to in-person meetings and auctions this fall! We will be requiring proof of vaccination at all in-person events to help keep everyone as safe as possible. Members will be able to watch all presentations online eventually, so we will try to accommodate folks who are sick, unvaccinated or not comfortable with with in-person events yet. And of course, everything is subject to changes in pandemic state, state and local laws, as well as Seattle Pacific University's outside events policy.
Here is the upcoming tentative schedule:
We ran out of small and medium sizes of our 2019 shirt, and rather than just reprint more in gray again, we did a run with a new color - blue! Same great design by Ryan Henry Ward of Seattle mural fame, but now with a beautiful aqua-background. Because we can't meet in person, we'll ship you one for a few bucks extra. Go to https://gsas.org/t-shirt.html to order.
