October 23: Landscape Transitioning
Presenters: Brown & Quattrocchi Landscaping, LLC
The Old Adage that “Fall is for Planting “ stands true. When you think about the Fall landscape, the color pallet is ever changing. We will take the opportunity to discuss the culture, practice and care of your Autumn landscape plantings, the benefits of establishing new gardens, the ability to change the color pallet in your garden by introducing seasonal flowers and foliage in window boxes, patio containers and throughout the landscape, while extending the interest of the landscape as it transitions from Summer into Fall. Join us for a look into how we can prepare for the changing season and create excitement in the garden!
October 30: Birding the Pine Barrens
Presenter: Sue Puder
Discover the birds that can be found in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey, a major stop on the Atlantic flyway, with author and photographer Susan Puder. The Pine Barrens cover one million acres of the outer coastal plain and is home to a great variety of plants and animals. This PowerPoint program will explore some of the best places to find raptors, waterfowl, shorebirds, warblers and other passerines that make this area their home, breed, or migrate through in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.
