Live Animal Show: Nature of My Back Yard

What do a flying squirrel, a woodchuck, and a porcupine have in common? They are all native to Westborough, and you can meet them, plus many more live local animals, at this free event! Come learn about some creatures that live right here in Westborough and the surrounding area, though they may not be frequently seen.

Bring the family--our popular spring live animal show is always a big hit with the young and the curious of all ages!

Plan to arrive early as seating is limited.

Location: Knights of Columbus Hall, 17 Willow St., Westborough MA; parking lot in rear. Overflow parking is in Arturo’s parking lot, 54 East Main St., and walk around behind the Arturo’s building to cross directly into the KofC parking lot. There is no parking along Willow Street.

Presented by The Creature Teachers. No reservation required. Free; donations gratefully accepted at the door.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Speaker: Mark Richardson on “Earth-Friendly Gardening”, WCLT Annual Meeting

How can you help the environment while creating beautiful gardens and landscapes in your own yard? Learn what to plant, and what not to plant, in order to save energy, use less water, help pollinators, and live sustainably in many other ways.

Speaker Mark Richardson oversees the New England Wild Flower Society’s botanic garden, Garden in the Woods, and its native plant nursery operation, Nasami Farm. He studied ornamental horticulture at University of Rhode Island while helping to run an ornamental plant nursery before finding his true passion in public horticulture. He led undergraduate programs at Longwood Gardens, where he overhauled the curriculum of the Professional Gardener Program, and oversaw adult education at Brookside Gardens. He holds a master’s degree from the University of Delaware’s Longwood Graduate Program.

Program will run from 7-8 pm; reception and Annual Meeting to follow.
