Upcoming Events

Winter Garden Exploration

49 South St, Blue Hill

Saturday, March 5

10AM-12PM

 

Organized by Downeast Audubon. Join NGBH co-founder Cathy Rees for an outdoor exploration at the native gardens. Participants will search for beauty in the gardens and nature to use as inspiration for their own gardens in winter. This is an opportunity to examine site conditions, look for planting ideas, and do some imagining. Dress for weather. Register via email to deaudubon@gmail.com.
