Letter from the Director

Dear Friends,

As each week goes by, I am amazed at the number of programs that we are adding to our calendar. Our outstanding team of educators and horticulturists has been busy developing a range of programs to appeal to all interests. From in-person programs conducted outdoors or in well ventilated spaces, socially distanced, and masked, to virtual programs, I am proud of the way our team has risen to the challenge of finding ways to stay connected and provide quality programming to the community. Be sure to check out our calendar, and register early since space is limited.

And don't forget to mark your calendars for my favorite activity, the Maple Sugaring Fest! This annual outdoor event will be held on Sunday, February 28 and is something the whole family will enjoy. See below for all the details.

Until next time,

.
