Coming This Fall: Nature and Environmental Programs

As anyone in our region knows, fall is a wonderful time to play in the garden, watch wildlife, take photos, or simply enjoy the changing palette of the trees. But would you guess it's also a great time to learn about nature at the library?

This Sunday, September 27, at 2:00 pm, we welcome back Master Gardener Susan Bell for Landscaping Tricks of the Trade:  Design and Maintenance Tips for Your Garden. A professional landscape designer, Susan will explain how to create healthy gardens while keeping maintenance safe, simple, and affordable. Her slide show has dozens of garden ideas. Audience members can ask questions and get advice about their own garden and landscape challenges.

Please join us for this free educational program made possible in cooperation with the Montgomery County Master Gardeners.

The Master Gardeners of Montgomery County's website is a great place to find answers to questions about everything from planting raised-bed vegetable gardens to making your roses less appealing to hungry deer.

Master Gardeners are trained volunteers of the University of Maryland Extension office who are dedicated to helping the citizens of Montgomery County. You may reach them by phone or email, or visit them at the many plant clinics and other events they host around the county.

The Olney Library would like to thank the volunteers from the Master Gardeners who have helped us bring high-quality programs to the public over the past year, including Susan Bell, George Willingmyre (who presented a trees program last fall) and Judy Termini, who finds all the volunteers for us. 

Stay tuned for a November program on medicinal herbs at the library. Check our online calendar of events for nature and science related programs throughout the year. Or view the list of upcoming events on the Olney Library webpage, just below the featured blog article. Happy autumn!
