And these are just a few of the ways your donor dollars were put to amazing use!

Wildflower Interest Group - THIS THURSDAY

05-01-2017

BUTTERFLY/HUMMINGBIRD MIX

POLLINATOR WILDFLOWER MEADOW

DANDELION

If you've taken a walk in the woods recently, you've no doubt seen the AMAZING variety of Ohio woodland wildflowers. Here's a few of our favorites you can find on the woodland trail at Clary Gardens:

BLOODROOT

FERN FRONDS

^^^DUTCHMAN'S BREECHES^^^

and ^^^RUE ANEMONE^^^

Interested in learning more about wildflowers and helping to plant some exciting native species in our area? Join us at the tan garden house (top left) at Clary Gardens THIS Thursday, May 4, 2017, at 5:30pm for the first meeting of the *NEW* WILDFLOWER INTEREST GROUP. Now that we've had the chance to view some growing naturally throughout the woodland property, we are interested in sharing our plan to increase the number and diversity in multiple future wildflower exhibits: throughout the woodlands and a naturalized meadow of wildflowers above the newly installed children's garden - this will also help supply nourishment to the local honeybee populations!

The purpose of the Wildflower Interest Group will be to have educational discussions around wildflowers and their preferred environments. Studies will include identification of wildflowers as well as developing the Coshocton area with more wildflowers through transplanting and new plantings. Interest groups like this one are designed to share information about specific topics. Areas of Clary Gardens will be used as "working labs" to put our knowledge into action. We hope to teach and learn from one another to help not only Clary Gardens but also using this knowledge to help your own properties grow and prosper.

Interested in learning more? Come to the Introductory Meeting this Thursday to learn more - No RSVP required. Open to all ages! Call Clary Gardens at 740-622-6524 with questions. Clary Gardens is located at 588 West Chestnut Street in Coshocton and is open 365 days a year, during daylight hours, and FREE to the public.
