The Nature Center's Garden Day Fest on August 2nd was a wonderful event.
A resounding thank you to the Master Gardeners of Burlington County who maintain and design the beautiful gardens on the Nature Center grounds. These include the Monarch Way Station, Dragonfly Pond, Wildlife Garden, Pollinator Meadow Garden, and Historical Garden. The knowledge and work of the Master Gardeners has enabled these gardens to grow and flourish.
Gardening projects at the Center are on-going, so if you'd like to help out with the Master Gardeners please contact Toni Price at firstname.lastname@example.org
