ALBANY — Mountain Garden Club will host its first meeting of the 2019-20 season on Monday, Sept. 16, at Tin Mountain Conservation Center, located at 1245 Bald Hill Road in Albany.
Refreshments will be served at 9:30 a.m., followed by a business meeting at 10 a.m. and the presentation begins at 11 a.m.
Members will receive their new copies of the Mountain Garden Club membership booklets.
New members are cordially invited to attend and to learn about a great year of programs and events planned.
Over the years, the Mountain Garden Club has been pleased to support the work of the Tin Mountain Conservation Center in support of the outreach and educational impact that Tin Mountain has on families and visitors to the Mount Washington Valley.
This year’s season opening presentation is "Fabulous Fall Flowers."
Scheduled presenters are Lori Jean Kinsey, executive director of Tin Mountain Conservation Center, and Rick Klausner, Tin Mountain certified naturalist. They will focus on the important role fall plants play, not only for their beauty but also for their environmental impact.
Lori and Rick will explain how fall plants function as a food source for the pollinators such as bees, wasps and butterflies that share a role in the food cycle for plants and wildlife.
The expectation is that those in attendance will leave with an enhanced understanding of why native goldenrod and asters deserve a spot in fall landscaping.
The Mountain Garden Club welcomes new members to join in a year of programs that promise to be enriching and meaningful as we bid a fond farewell to a spectacular summer and welcome the signs, colors, and plants that define fall in the valley.
