For Peat's Sake: Bogs, Fens and Peatland Habitats of Foster's Pond

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Peatlands are natural flood controls, fascinating ecosystems, and storage bins for more carbon than all other vegetation types in the world combined. Foster’s Pond offers an incredible diversity of peatland habitats whose size and complexity are unmatched in this region. Local landscape designer and botanist, Richard Barry, will talk about the unique peatland ecosystems of Foster's Pond and ways to help the pond through gardening practices, including how to create rain gardens and the best native plants to use. A collaboration of Memorial Hall Library and Foster's Pond Corporation.
