Well, we finally got a bit of snow this week, though it looks like it will be gone before we know it. But at least it’s sunny!
Yesterday was a different story, cold and gray all day long. The best place to be? In the greenhouse, where it felt tropical by comparison, just look at the foggy camera lens!
Regardless of the weather we are busy at the farm! Next weekend is our Winter Fun Day (cross your fingers for snow so we can create a snow sculpture).
The following week is Groundhog Day, and everyone’s favorite local groundhog, Ms. G will be making an appearance at 9:30 am to deliver her forecast. The nice folks at Whole Foods Wayland have donated some snacks and warm beverages (we’ll enjoy those in the Pond House immediately following the forecast). Ms. G loves a good audience so come join us! The forecast (and goodies, crafts & stories at 10 am) are all free. We’ll have additional events throughout the day that are free with paid admission (and free for members).
Looking ahead a bit we have an exciting new event Local Favorites: A Taste of Wine and Cheese, on March 2, from 5:30-7:30 pm. Guests will taste local cheese, local wine, and hang out by a warm fire in the Nature Center. It should be a relaxing fun evening! To register please contact the registrar at 781-259-2206.
And for those of you dreaming of summer, it’s time to register for camp. All of Mass Audubon’s camps (18 day camps, and an overnight camp Wildwood) are now open for registration. Drumlin Farm camp sessions fill quickly, so download a registration form and mail it in!
