    Native Landscapes Workshop

    July 29, 2017, 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM

  • Our summer workshop will begin with a short history of the meadow installation and its growth over fourteen years. We will also tour the meadow for a closer look.

    Barbara Hughey and Heather Grimes will present general management techniques for this time of year and answer queries that were mailed to us for our consideration.

    There are four different ecosystems – wetlands, woodlands, meadow, and domestic. The workshop will focus on what people most want to explore. We will conclude with a discussion on the aesthetics of landscape planning and enhancing design with low maintenance.

    Coffee and sweet rolls will be served.

    Cost is $50. Location will be released upon registration. Find out more about Linda’s restored landscape (TerraConstructa) at lindabhorn.com

  • Book Signing with Michael Adamovich

  • Join CLC, Chatham Bookstore, and author Michael Adamovic to get a peak of some beautiful photos of the Hudson Valley (including some CLC sites) in Adamovic’s new book, Hudson Valley Reflections.

    From the review from Schiffer Books:

    Discover the natural and architectural wonders that abound along New York’s Hudson River Valley in this lavishly illustrated travel and field guide. The unique scenery, plants and wildlife, and architecture of the valley, from Sleepy Hollow near New York City north to the town of Catskill, are showcased through 150 color photos. Brief essays relate the majesty of the four seasons in the valley, its waterfalls, bogs, people, history, and more. Whether it’s learning about the recovery of bald eagles or the region’s rare orchids, taking a tour through a historic Gilded-Age mansion, or rambling to the top of a legendary mountain said to be the abode of mischievous imps, it will be hard, if not impossible, to avoid falling “under the sway of some witching power” that Washington Irving believed pervades this remarkable land. Includes a map with 40 locations worth visiting and driving directions.
