All Events

Every season brings beautiful changes to the Preserve’s landscape, and, in springtime, we celebrate the return of longer days, warmer temperatures – and budding¬†trees, shrubs, and perennial plants. While these blooms occur naturally, we have much work to do to plant colorful annuals, fresh herbs, and plants to attract butterflies. At the Spring Celebration, visitors are invited to bring their trowels and help with these plantings! Families who planted seeds at the April Spring Back! program can bring their seedlings and plant them in gardens of the Phil Dejana Learning Center Outdoor Classroom and other designated areas on the grounds. Presentations include Volunteers for Wildlife with rescued owls and hawks; monarch butterflies; and a beekeeping at our apiary. Children can enjoy outdoor activities and a range of projects, including creating bird feeders, acorn pendants, and more.
