Join Nature Center for 'Hardy Bulbs' and 'Fall Migration'
April 09, 2010
The John T. Huston - Dr. John D. Brumbaugh Nature Center will hold 'Landscaping with Hardy Bulbs' on Saturday, November 6 from 10 ' 11 a.m. and 'Fall Migration' on Sunday, November 7 from 2 ' 4 p.m.
No landscaping is complete without the effects of hardy bulbs. This workshop will introduce the homeowner to incorporating hardy bulbs into the landscape. Dave Goerig of the Mahoning Company Extension Office will show us how to identify hardy bulbs and tell us their cultural requirements. He will even tell us how to force them to flower indoors out of season.
The geese are heading south (at least most of them), and it is mostly lack of food ' not the cold ' that is sending them away. Can you imagine what brings them back? Join Laura Dornan as she explains some of the mysteries of migration. We will spend a little time inside talking about the 'whys' of migration, discover more by doing some migration activities and then go out to enjoy the fall weather and see if we can spot some migrants. Suggested for adults and families with children 5th grade and above.
No registration is required for these events. The Nature Center is located 6 miles south of Mount Union College on Daniel Street, just off Route 183. For more information, contact the Nature Center at (330) 823-7487.
