What's Happening

EcosculptureGarden Updates

A special thank you to our regular volunteers and new volunteers who came out to plant the bee ecosculpture.  A photo gallery of the activity helps show the process. 

The bee and Echinacea flower will soon be moved to their regular location on top the pole in the garden. Other things in bloom at this time include our lovely Wisteria (purple flowering vine overtop of the north entrance), our rose garden (almost ready to burst) and the Sambucus (Black Elderberry) shrub (check out all the ladybugs feasting on the aphids that flock to this shrub as well)!
