Just about everyone who reads my blog knows I spend way too much time (just kidding) at my volunteer “job” at the Howard County Conservancy. April and May are two of the busiest months. But, they are chock full of fun things to do, and in a location that just takes away all the stress in my life the minute I enter the driveway.
How can you resist the lure of this view?
Here is the upcoming calendar.
APR 26- Saturday 8am-1pm Earth Day: Make a Difference!
Start with a bird walk. Grab some gardening tools and pitch in and plant trees. Or, clean out some invasive species. Buy some native plants at the plant sale.
APR 28- Monday 9-12am Home School Day
This field trip is one of my favorites. Home school families will come to the Conservancy. A handful of us will be manning stations to teach them. And, they have some large group activities as well. Always a great interactive day with people who are passionate about teaching their children.
MAY 4 – Sunday 3- 6 pm Belmont Preview Event
The Conservancy is officially kicking off their management of the Belmont Mansion site. With an open house. If you have never been to Belmont you should check out this event.
MAY 10- Saturday 10am Mothers’ Day Special- Tea, Scones & Gardens
This year I am making scones for this Mother’s Day party. The local garden clubs who maintain the various gardens on the property will be on hand to show off the spring finery, and there will be tea and scones.
MAY 29- Thursday 5-8pm 8th Annual Wine in the Garden
The annual major fund raiser for the Conservancy. And, a wonderful night in the honors garden. With silent auction. Many caterers providing small bites (enough altogether to make a light fancy feast). Numerous wines, some local. This year the event is after Memorial Day, so an easier night to attend without interfering with holiday plans.
Check out the upcoming events page. Come join us, for one or more of them, or just come visit. Spring is busting out all over.
