The Harvard Conservation Trust’s 37th Annual Tree-For-All:
The Harvard Conservation Trust will distribute Eastern Redbud seedlings at the Transfer Station on Saturday, May 6th from 8 AM to noon, and on the Harvard Common on Sunday, May 7th from 9:30 AM to noon.
In early spring, their pink-purple flowers line the bark of their twigs, branches, and trunks, announcing the end of winter. Redbud has uniquely heart-shaped leaves. Many birds eat the seeds, and honeybees visit the blossoms. The shrubs are free to Harvard Conservation Trust members and are available to non-members for a $5.00 contribution.
Saturday, May 6: Tree-For-All at the Transfer Station, 8:00 AM-12:00 PM
Sunday, May 7: Tree-For-All in the Town Center, 9:30 AM-12:00 PM
Did you know that the “sounds of nature” are not necessarily pleasant, nor is the music that imitates them? Join local musician Stephen Peisch and David Pihl as they present a program of piano music that was inspired by nature, including compositions by Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Bela Bartok, Amy Beach, Edward MacDowell, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Allen Hovhaness, Claude Debussy, Stephen Peisch, and William Thomas McKinley.
