CAMDEN — Conservation and Natural Landscapes will be the topic at the Camden Garden Club meeting on Thursday, October 24, at the First Congregational Church, in Camden.
Coffee and Tea will be served at 9 a.m. followed by the presentation at 9:30 a.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
Guest speaker Annette Naegel, director of Conservation at Georges River Land Trust, has been working in the field of conservation and stewardship for the past thirty years.
Growing up in southern Connecticut with a stream running through her backyard, Naegel spent many hours exploring and learning about the beauty and diversity of nature, according to Camden Garden Club, in a news release. She attended Connecticut College to study economics but also studied with William Niering, a well-known botanist and wetland ecologist, which eventually led to work in the environmental field and a degree in Environmental Studies from the Yale School of Forestry.
Naegel loves to swim, hike, ski and generally be outdoors. She lives in Rockland and enjoys tending her own vegetable and perennial gardens.
Camden Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. Guests and prospective members are always welcome.
