Our next guild gathering will focus on the sweetness of soils and the physiology of the sugar maple. We will also be highlighting phenological monitoring and its importance/connection to the bigger understanding of our ecological communities.
What: March Burlington Phenology Guild event
When: Saturday, March 16th
Time: 9 a.m. – noon
Meet in the RPS Library
Bring: Yourself (and a friend), your journal that BPG provided, your curiosity, and your appetite.
This BPG event will spend the first 2 hours mostly outside and then move inside to enjoy a Maple Celebration hosted by Rock Point School students. We will be heading to the dining room for an incredible brunch at 11:00. With that we will also have the option of taking a tour of the sugaring facility at RPS. It is a great community event not to be missed! (The BPG will be covering the cost of the maple brunch for our registered Guild members!)
Kathy needs a count of who is coming so get in touch with us if you plan to be there. As well, if you have the opportunity to carpool, bike or walk, I would recommend it as parking on this morning will be tight.
Check out our updated blog where we will be sharing the glorious signs of spring!http://bpgvt.blogspot.com/
