Pollinator Plant Sale - May 13
Visit our Pollinator Plant Sale at Sleeping Giant State Park (near the Butterfly Garden by the main entrance) on Saturday, May 13 from 9:30 to noon--just in time for Mother's Day. We'll help you fill your garden with pollinator plants to help native bees, butterflies and more. Experts will be on hand to give advice and share information. Pollinators are in trouble and providing larval and nectar plants is one way to help. Rain date: Sunday, May 14, same times.
Birds and Brew
Our successful Birds and Brew event will return this year Sunday, May 7 at 1pm. Parking at the W.B. Mason lot on State Street, we will observe the active bald eagle nest on our property across the street. We'll have experts on hand with spotting scopes to explain how the fledglings and parents are doing. Then, we'll all head over a short way to No Worries Brewery for a pint and a chat. Come join the fun!
