On Sunday, April, 28th, Shirley Heinze Land Trust hosted its first Open House at its new location, Meadowbrook. The Open House was a huge success with around 150 people who attended!

Upon arrival, guests were given a tour of the new administration house, and then were able to walk a trail through Meadowbrook to the the cabins in the back where wine and hors d'oeuvres were being served. The cabin also had a Friend's of Shirley Heinze (FOSH) exhibit, where people were able to adopt a plant to grow in Meadowbrook's native plant garden. The Bringing Nature Home event was also displayed on the FOSH table, which recognizes people who include native plant species in their home gardens. Conversations and introductions between guests were plentiful in the cabin, with everyone really enjoying themselves. I was able to introduce and be introduced to several members of the Shirley Heinze Land Trust along with other volunteers and people from other organizations. It was really neat explaining what I was doing with the Moraine Projects through my summer internship to such enthusiastic people. I had such a great time meeting and speaking with all the people who came to show support to the Shirley Heinze Land Trust and helped make it a very huge success.
