We used to have local meetings that would either be outside Buffalo (Aaron H.'s place) - or in Ithaca. But we haven't had one in quite a while. There is a Greater New York Area Dendrobatid Society (GNYADS) email list - but it isn't very active, and to be honest, I am not sure how people can be added any more. But I might be able to find out.
If you are ever down in the Ithaca area, I am more than happy to show you my frog room. I have cut down recently - so I am at only about 20 tanks. Mostly pumilio, but also a mix of some other Phyllobates and Dendrobates.
Only 20 tanks lol. I'm at 6. Being from the city you dont how big the state of NY is. I meet a few people here in the city but I think the dude that was holding the meetings down here gave up his collection.
Unfortunately - the Ithaca weather was too tough on my bonsai. I didn't have a place with bright enough light to keep my tropicals happy - and it was too cold for my temperates and I had no place to set up a cold house. I lost my most prized tree (Trident Elm root over rock) and another beautiful Chinese Elm and Fukien Tea - so I replaced all of my trees. Someday I will start again.
It looks like I lost all of my bonsai pictures as well - which sucks. I can't even share images of them.
I live in rochester but unfortunately only empty setups. Thought this would be a good place to meet locals with similiar interest in pdf. Currently looking for pairs of thumbs. Interested in colorful thumbs and pumilio.
