Spring had Sprung...Finally! Come Out for the Annual Earth Day Festival

Today I finally saw my annual confirmations of spring. The Shadbush and Bird Foot Violets are blooming, and a Spring Azure on the trail, very encouraging after this very cold winter. And with Spring comes the annual Earth Day Festival at ACUA Sunday April 27 from 10am-4pm. The ACUA is located on Delilah Rd in EHT. I will be there with plants for sale including Swamp Milkweed, Asters, and Seaside Goldenrod for Monarchs. Also many other wildlife friendly, species like Echinacea, Liatris, Bee Balm and Switch Grass. Jesse Conner will be doing the talk this year. She will be talking about the newly formed chapter of the NJ Native Plant society. This chapter is based in Galloway TWP, and allows us South Jersey folks to participate in discovering the native plants we love. Please come out and see us.
