    WEBINAR: The Beautiful Majabigwaduce River: Greening Your Watershed Landscape

    April 22, 2021  3:30 pm - 4:00 pm
     

    Join Bagaduce estuary admirer, photographer, and neighbor Ann Flewelling for a scenic virtual trip across the miles and seasons of this remarkable waterway. 

    Here, in 1996 Ann, a psychologist, and her husband Charles Read, a teacher, purchased the east shore property to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. They named their place FAIRVIEW FARM. However, how and what they would "farm" or promote as stewards evolved over the years. 

    This is the story of people who care for the land, who make mistakes and learn from them, and who, best of all, have accepted ecologically wise advice from friends and mentors. They, along with the birds, moths, caterpillars, bees as well as native pollinator plants, good bugs, and creatures of the soil, thank you!
