Radnor Memorial Library and its frequent partners Radnor Conservancy and Radnor Bird Town, will host three local experts in the Winsor Room on Tuesday, May 26, at 7:00PM.

This program will explore the impact of climate change and how you can personally make a difference through recycling and the use of renewable energy. windsolarAllison Gardner from Mom’s Organic Market, along with educator and farmer Andrew Frankenfield, and Josh Hilbert, who is chairperson of the Radnor Township Environmental Advisory Council, will discuss current innovations and those in the experimental stage. We will also learn about recycling at home in Radnor Township…and ways you can support the renewable energy movement.

I hope to see you there.

I was worried you hadn’t thought of Kermit the frog, lately.

So here.

On Tuesday, May 12, 7:30PM, Darla DeMorrow returns to Radnor Memorial Library for another great presentation on designing your rooms.

DEMORROW

Darla, a certified professional organizer, decorator, and owner of HeartWork Organizing, LLC (based in Wayne) has great decorating ideas for you if you are planning to move…these top staging ideas can bring you the most joy and highest price. If you are staying put, dramatic and beautiful changes to any room can be easier than you think.

Tools presented include room design, picking colors, placing furniture, and more. What I like most is Darla’s “before and after” shots from real local homes where she worked her magic.

I hope to see you there!

To Bee Or Not To Bee…

When it comes to raising honey bees, Edward Pieters, PhD, entomologist and beekeeper, knows quite a lot about it. Ed can really liven up a room and generate a lot of buzz…as he did last night in the Winsor Room.

Ed spent 2 hours with us last night, What a surprise that we got to sample many kinds of honey, including honey from his own Pieters Apiary. Thanks, Ed!

Bees to meet you

Want to bring nature home to your backyard? I feel like I am channeling Doug Tallamy here.

By that, I don’t mean just the pretty plants. I mean all the hard-working pollinators like butterflies, bats, beetles, birds and of course, the bees, who make it all happen. We cannot live without them.

Last night, at Dr. Dan Duran’s 5B’s presentation, it was very clear to us why we have to stop using weed killers and other chemicals. Also, we have to stop raking up all the old leaves that the pollinators need. And we should leave some bare dirt patches for the bees to make a home. Now that was easy…

And if we plant amazing Serviceberry trees, buttonbush plants, and some milkweed for the Monarch butterflies, then we are truly amazing, too.

Thank you to Dr. Dan Duran for his expertise and for coming out on a school night– and to Drexel University and the Academy of Natural Sciences.

Looking forward to Honey Bee Buzz on Tuesday, April 28, 6:30PM…

Winged creatures are getting the honor they deserve, thanks to the 5 B’s partnership.

5bswebsitetitle

Audubon PA, Wayne Art Center, Radnor Bird Town, Radnor Memorial Library, Radnor Middle School, Radnor Conservancy and Jenkins Arboretum have been very busy presenting special events just for you since March 29 and it won’t end until May 9, 2015.

Here are the pictures from last Friday night, when Batman and Paul Bunyan (Jackson Miller and Ty Miller, respectively) visited Radnor Memorial Library for the bird and bat house-building workshop. It was a lot of fun for the grown-ups, but mostly for the children who got to build stuff and then run around the Winsor Room with Batman and Mr. Bunyan!

Visit the website for the 5 B’s right here:
