The O’Hara Nature Center on Irvington’s Mountain Road is one of the projects supported by GCI. This center features nine demonstration gardens that have curriculum-related content for educational programs—and are examples for beautifying your landscape. They include the Bird, Butterfly and Bee Garden, the Bog Garden, the Xeriscape and Rock garden, the Edible Forest Ggarden, the Shade Garden, and the Woodland Garden.

We look forward to an equally successful 2016, and wish you and yours a happy, healthy New Year.
