Take a virtual trip through our Inspiring Environmental Leaders display
What a beautiful video showcasing the Garden and our Inspiring Environmental Leaders exhibit made by our partners over at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region!

Working in collaboration with USFWS, The Learning Farm, and the local young people who participated to complete this exhibit was a privilege. There are so many environmental stewards we admire, which environmental leader inspires you?

USFWS also created a fully audio described version of the video above!
Help keep the Garden warm in the cooler seasons
As the colder weather approaches, and we all enjoy the last sunny warmth, the ICG team could use your firewood donations! 

Small campfires add SO much warmth, coziness and learning opportunities to our programs.  If you have firewood to donate, even if it is too old for your woodstove, please consider bringing it to the Garden. 

All donations will be received by, so reach out to arrange your drop off.
