Help us celebrate our Audubon in Action native plant garden grant project by joining us for the ribbon cutting. The event will also include an iNaturalist class, crafts for kids, garden themed giveaways and an open hike around Hundred Acre Hollows with plant and bird experts on hand to answer questions.
