Winter Lecture Series part 1- “Bird Friendly Maple”
March 6 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The McLaughlin Garden Winter Lectures series opens with guest speakers Brian and Suzanne Dunham of Dunham Farm and Velvet Hollow Sugar Works in Greenwood. Their lecture, “Bird-Friendly Maple”, includes both maple sugaring and birding information. The Dunhams commit to increasing the diversity of birds and wildlife who call the forests on their property home. Their sugarbush is the first in Maine to have a “Bird-Friendly” designation from the Bird Friendly Maple Program supported by Maine Audubon. The hybrid lecture welcomes the public in person upstairs in the historic McLaughlin Homestead at 97 Main Street (Route 26), South Paris. Anyone who is unable to attend in person can still enjoy the lecture online. To the zoom link, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy tea and baked goods at 3:30pm followed by the lecture at 4:00pm.
The tea and program are free and open to the public although donations are requested for the McLaughlin Garden. Each speaker is donating the lecture as a way to help keep the McLaughlin Garden open. In case of inclement weather, please call the garden at 743-8820 or check the Garden’s Facebook page for a cancellation.
