Master Gardener and Master Naturalist Kathy Sykes will lead an early summer walk along the Connecticut Ave pollinator corridor. This past spring had unseasonably cool weather which kept flowers in bloom a little longer. The weather is warming up and summer native plants are emerging such as bee balm, milkweed and penstemon. You will learn some new ways to attract pollinators to your garden whether you have full sunlight, part shade or full shade.

See the "Thinker" sculpture in person and van Gogh up close. In the late morning, we will walk through the Rodin garden and see his art on display in the gallery. Then after lunch study color, lines, space and light in the works of Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso at the Barnes Foundation.
