All are welcome to join the Friends of Sessions Woods at
their Annual Meeting at the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection
Wildlife Division's Sessions Woods Conservation Education Center in Burlington!
Beginning at 12:30 p.m., participants can bring sweets to share for a
pre-presentation, potluck dessert extravaganza! At 1:00 p.m., the Friends of
Sessions Woods will conduct a brief, 10-minute business meeting to elect
officers before the featured presentation. Peter Picone, a CT DEEP Wildlife Division
Habitat Program biologist, will provide an interesting and informative program
on using native plants to benefit wildlife. He also will talk about plans to
develop a rain garden at Sessions Woods. Special guests, Lisa and Kyle Turcozi
from Earth Tones Native Plant Nursery, will be on hand to answer
your questions about the wide variety of native shrubs and plants, including
flowering plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies, that will be
available for sale. Earth Tones Native Plant Nursery was recently selected by
Yankee Magazine as the Best Native Nursery. Please pre-register for this FREE
program by calling the Sessions Woods office at 860-675-8130.
