Thursday, July 25th
Skoog Park at 8 a.m.
Each Thursday this summer, VLT will offer a bird walk with a local, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic birder. They will show you where to find the most interesting birds, and tips on how to identify them. Bring binoculars if you have them. Expect uneven terrain, but it should be generally fine for most walkers. Meet at Skoog Park to venture out to a preserve.
Free, all are welcome.
July 23, Tuesday, 7 p.m.
Pleasant River Grange
In this slide-show talk, Heather McCargo will show you the fascinating reproductive life cycle of different types of New England native plants and explain how we can change our landscape practices to support wild plant reproduction, pollinators, and other wildlife. Heather will talk about simple outdoor seed sowing that anyone can do to help increase native plant populations. Growing native plants from seed is a great way to protect the genetic diversity of our native flora and to produce an abundance of plants inexpensively. Be part of a grassroots movement to sow native seed.
Suggested donation of $5
