Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County will host three Garden Travel Slide Shows this winter. The first is:
Alcatraz Historic Garden Restoration - Alcatraz, the famous island prison in San Francisco Bay, had gardens maintained by soldiers, prisoners, and prison staff until it was closed in 1963. In 2003, the Garden Conservancy undertook a long-term project to restore the historic gardens. Dan Klein, Tompkins County Beautification Coordinator, has volunteered several times to help with this restoration and will share his experiences and photos.
This event will be held SATURDAY afternoon Jan. 17, 2:00-3:30 pm, at the Cooperative Extension Education Center, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca. Refreshments and time to socialize will follow the talk. $3 suggested donation helps support the Horticulture Program. Please call 272-2292 for more information.
The other two programs are:
- Jan. 31, Gardens and Landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, with Irene Lekstutis.
- Feb. 28, Flowers and Frost, by photographer Dede Hatch.
