You will also be able to make and take your own suet from our “suet bar” which will be set up with a variety of tasty treats. 

March 2 – What’s New at Nahant Marsh: Brian Ritter will discuss the present and future of Nahant Marsh. We will discuss plans for the newly acquired land, future restoration projects, and trail and amenity development.

April 6 – Lawn Reform: Changing Lawn Expectations in Your Neighborhood: Our discussion will begin with information on the public education campaign, Good Neighbor Iowa and changing the way you look at lawn care. Whether you are a gardener or have a brown thumb, we will go over easy ways to ensure that your yard benefits wildlife and the environment, mistakes to avoid, and common lawn concerns. You will also leave with resources for more information on natural lawn care and gardening for the environment. Guest Speaker, Tara Witherow.
