Did you know that POLLINATORS are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat?  It’s true; without bees, butterflies, bats, and other pollinators we would not have any strawberries, mangos, melons, or many other items we love so much. 

To pay tribute to the amazing gifts pollinators carry from plant to plant and on to our table, the Open Space Visitor Center has organized an exciting series of activities in which you can partake.

 

*Other scheduled activities:

  • Self-guided garden tours
  • Perusal of two current art exhibits—

STRATA—beautiful nature-inspired prints by Sarah Vosmus

REMEDIATE—thought-provoking sculptures and weavings by Cristine Posner

  • Access to stunning views and trails

The mission of the Open Space Visitor Center’s gardens and fields is to “learn, demonstrate, and share traditional and sustainable agriculture from the earliest growers in the region to the present.”
