Audubon Exclusive: Saturday In The Garden

The Audubon Community Nature Center will host “Saturday in the Garden with Audubon” on June 8 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Kay and Gary Johnson will open their garden, an oasis of green in Busti, , for lunch and a tour. The event is an Audubon Exclusive, that is, a distinctive opportunity in exchange for a donation to Audubon.

The Johnsons have created a very large, wildlife-friendly habitat that includes a glacial rock fountain, pond, and acres of gardens that blend into fields and forest.

Kay Johnson’s bluebird boxes will be alive with activity, and she will share why some models work better than others.

Bird watchers should also be able to spot nesting tree swallows.

The tour also includes lunch. Space is limited. The cost is $40, and paid reservations are required by Wednesday, June 5.

Reservations can be made by calling 569-2345 during business hours or going online to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking through “Current Schedule.” (Rain date is June 15.)
