Attention gardeners & nature lovers!  Join us four Saturdays during February and March for a variety of gardening programs presented this year by Iowa experts on bird watching, vermicomposting, growing roses, and how to grow historic irises.  The Cabin Fever Gardening series begins on February 17 with a program presented by lifelong local birdwatcher, Sharon Bauer.  Sharon's program will include basic birding, beginning bird watching, backyard birding and feeders and connecting with the birding community.  She will also introduce us to the Great Backyard Bird Count which is coming up on February 16-18.  Make sure to mark your calendar for this interesting program!  These programs are free and open to the public.
