Garden tour March 12
In addition, on Tuesday, March 12, 5:30 -7 p.m., you may visit Emily Dickinson’s Garden at Cornell Cooperative Extension in Liberty, NY.
The great poet Emily Dickinson loved wildflowers, especially the delicate blooms of March and April. Her quiet life in 19th century Amherst Massachusetts was described by a friend as follows: "Her events were the coming of the first bird, the bursting of a chrysalis…the wondering opening on the new world of every little flower."
Join naturalist Ed Wesely for a virtual tour of the fields and streams that Emily Dickinson knew around Amherst, and of the spring wildflowers that inspired her. This program is hosted by the Delaware Highlands Conservancy in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Sullivan County. The event is free and open to the public, but prior registration is required. Call Susan Dollard at (845)292-6180 or email email@example.com to register and receive directions.
