We have become aware that there is a rogue web site offering to "help" Botany 2016 attendees with housing, etc. We strongly advise you to avoid this web site. Also, we have NOT partnered with any group to make hotel reservations for you. You must make your own hotel arrangements. If you are contacted by anyone - please let me know.
Looking to save money - and find a roommate to share expenses - our Room Mate Matching Service is available to help!
