Plan A just wasn’t good enough, so surprise net tonight will feature Plan Bee! There will be no math and nothing too difficult. Join us on tonight at 19:00 local time on the 146.88 repeater.

I’ll probably add more links after the net…but here’s a great one to get started with if you’d like to help carry out Plan Bee: https://www.pollinator.org/pollinator.org/assets/generalFiles/pollinator-garden-cards_texas.pdf

And if that one was too simple for you, a more comprehensive guide is here: https://www.pollinator.org/PDFs/PrairieParklandSubtrp.rx3.pdf

Getting Started With Discord

Getting Started With Discord

The DARC has established a public Discord Server with several public Text Channels and a voice and video channel titled “DARC Lounge” – This is a handy resource to use – drop in anytime it is always on (in the cloud) use the #darc-public channel to share ideas, links ask questions or anything top of mind. The public channel is great to hang out on during some of the DARC Nets – a lot of the Internet links can be shared more easy. Access to the DARC Discord server is easy – you don’t even have to make an account or use an app if you don’t want – a Chrome browser works great. Details below
