Led by Resident Volunteers from the Environmental Design and Protection Committee
To help increase resident awareness of the Town’s Native Gardens, EDPC members are holding a series of events. These are designed to be a celebration of the Native Gardens and foster enjoyment by spending time in them. Each event will include a discussion of the plant species found in the Native Garden, docent-led plant identification walks, and a variety of environmental education activities for all ages. For more information and to RSVP for an upcoming happening please contact Grace at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next garden event on November 12 at 10 am will feature local landscape artist and art teacher, Ann McMillan (https://www.annmcmillanart.com/). Ann provides prompts and ideas for sketching the garden, with an emphasis on natural history observations. Ann explores the interactions between organisms and environments--the stories that quietly play out in every stream and garden. Carpenter bees steal nectar from sage flowers while hummingbirds pollinate them, the first rains of the season bring in Termite Day when all the termites fly and the air shimmers with their wings. We will find wonderful nature stories in the garden this week; the rains ring the changes from our summer dormant season to the active growing season when everything springs to life, spring or not. Ann will bring some backup supplies, but a sketchbook or paper and pencil are all you need. Colored pencils or watercolors are fun, but not required.
