Earth Day To Be Celebrated All Month At Library

April 4, 2011 by Special To The ...

Earth Day is fast approaching (April 22) and several organizations are planning events around the area to commemorate the special occasion. For its part, the Cheshire Public Library will be holding several events with an "Earth" theme. The following is a list of upcoming library-sponsored events:

How to be a Master Gardener
Tuesday Apr 12, 2011
Time: 7 to 8 p.m.
This event presents an overview of UCONN's Master Gardener Program. Master Gardeners receive horticulture training, which they then share with the community at large through required volunteer work with their local Cooperative Extension Center. Register online, or call the Library at (203) 272-2245, ext. 4.
Contact Bill Basel at (203) 272-2245 or bbasel@cheshirelibrary.org for more information.

Adopt a Bluebird (registration required)
Wednesday Apr 13, 2011
Time: 7 to 8 p.m.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Join the Town of Cheshire at the Cheshire Public Library in an effort to create suitable nesting houses for our native bluebird, an important species of the suburban environment. Loss of habitat and competition from introduced bird species have contributed to a significant population decline in the past several decades. Individuals, families, and groups are invited to construct a bluebird house from a kit provided by the Town. The nesting box will then be installed on town property and the participants will monitor and report on the use of the box. Space is very limited for this program. Commitment to the entire scope of the project is required. For more information and to register, call or email Town Environmental Planner Suzanne Simone at (203) 271-6670 or ssimone@cheshirect.org

Butterfly Gardening
Tuesday Apr 19, 2011
Time: 7 to 8 p.m.
Come to the Cheshire Public Library and learn to identify and attract butterflies to your garden. Through photographs of caterpillars and butterflies, we will learn the common butterflies of Connecticut. This program will highlight the Bird & Butterfly Garden at the state’s Lockwood Farm in Hamden as a resource for ideas and education. Resource lists and fact sheets will be available to participants. Register online, or call the Library at (203) 272-2245, ext. 4.
