Native Plants for Bainbridge Island Conservation

The sun is coming out and the spring flowers are abloom.  This is a perfect time to come by and grab some native plants to revamp your garden.

New this year, there will be a native species class led by John Van Den Meerendonk, owner of Botanica Inc.  be sure to stop by the plant sale from 11am – noon to learn about the importance and advantages of using native pants for restoration and landscaping.   John will discuss attributes and selection of native trees, shrubs, groundcovers, perennials and ferns, as well as give you a brief overview of their place in the landscape.  There will also be free restoration and landscape classes at the same time.

Support the Bainbridge Island Land Trust by stopping by Saturday April 12 from 9am to the new location – The First Baptist Church (corner of Madison and New Brooklyn, across from the fire station).

Proceeds from our Native Plant Sale go to the stewardship of Bainbridge Island conservation lands.



Bainbridge Island Planetarium Show "Journey to the Center of the Milky Way"

Astronomer Dave Fong will take you on a star tour that follows a galactic spiral arm all the way down to the mysterious center. Along the way, we will visit alien planets, baby stars, cosmic clouds and dying stars.  If the sky is clear, astronomers will be on hand with telescopes for a close look at the delights of the sky.
