Seasons Changing Already at Schoepfle

Signs of Spring are starting to arrive around the garden.  The first greens of spring bulbs are poking through the earth.  The silver maple has budded out, albeit a tad early.  Forsythia buds are starting to swell to let us know that winter’s whites and greys will soon be replaced with greens and yellows and purples and more.

Another sign of spring is the volunteer meeting at Schoepfle Garden.  Every year our volunteers start the year with a brief planning session and overview for the upcoming season.  We welcome new faces interested in volunteering – we can help you join Friends at the meeting – who may want to help around Schoepfle Garden with garden chores, running the gift shop, driving the tram and operating the carousel.  Our meeting is Saturday February 18th at 11:am- a potluck lunch follows.  For more details, call Matt at 440-965-7237 or mkocsis@metroparks.cc

We are also celebrating Otto Schoepfle’s 107th birthday with an overview of his life in pictures and a tour of his home and grounds.  Life of Otto is on Thursday February 23rd at 9:30am – it is free but pre-registration is requested.
