We are happy to announce that workers are putting the finishing touches to the entrance to the Marsh Discovery Trail. It will reopen soon.
Amid reports that Monarch numbers are down again, we have been seeing quite a few in recent days– at Harrier Meadow on yesterday’s walk, in DeKorte Park, and elsewhere.
To all of you have planted/shared milkweed, the Monarchs say thank you! Photo above was taken at Jill’s Garden yesterday with a point-and-shoot.
