Educating adults in conservation, ecology, and horticulture.

Tuesday Talks

Our popular series of Tuesday Talks are held each Tuesday at noon from January through October; 38 in total for 2024. Presenters come from acidemia, government and business, all leading experts in their fields.  Current research and best practices in ecology, conservation and horticulture help people to stewards of their land and nature.

Talks from January through Memorial Day are free for everyone and presented via Zoom. From June through October, talks are held in-person in the Hexagon and are free for members and $5 for non-members.

Workshops

Workshops are held year round. Subjects include animal tracking, bird watching, seed starting, perennial dividing, apple tree pruning, worm bins and mushroom foraging. Workshops require pre-registration. Some workshops are free and others have a fee.  All are fascinating and informative!
