On Sunday, Jun. 13, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Lyme Pollinator Pathway (LPP) will offer an “Afternoon at Ballek’s Garden Center” (in East Haddam) – an event where participants can create or purchase a pollinator planter, or buy a selection of native pollinator plants to take home. The event is limited to 40 participants. Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will receive a coupon for 10 percent of select items at Ballek’s. LPP is an initiative of the Town of Lyme’s Sustainable Committee.
Lyme’s Open Space Coordinator has announced that on select Tuesday mornings in June, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., she and other explorers will continue to lead “Tuesday Treks” – weekly walks through different Town preserves. The trek leaders will alternate between Sue Cope, the environmental director of the Lyme Land Conservation Trust; Wendy Hill, Lyme’s Open Space Coordinator; and Kristina White, executive director of the land trust. (To reserve a spot, contact the appropriate trek leader; see below.) In the event of inclement weather, the treks are canceled.
