One…two…three! It’s Year Three! Our Secret Garden is in its third year celebrating our Earth and her sustainable young stewards.

CANCELLED: Lafayette’s Amazing Natural History

Posted on Updated on

Doc Hale has informed us that has to cancel our event this afternoon. Due to an illness in his extended family, he has to fly to aid in the end of life care of his uncle. We are sorry to have this last minute glitch, but will notify you when we reschedule.

Thanks for your understanding.
