Smithsonian Museum Day Cancelled; Pollinator Garden Postponed to May 16

Smithsonian Museum Day activities at the Heritage Center that were scheduled for April 4 have been cancelled in accordance with decisions by the national Smithsonian Museum system.

The Oberlin Heritage Center has moved its work activities for creating a pollinator-friendly garden bed to coincide with Grounds Day on Saturday, May 16. Come lend a hand for an hour or two as OHC volunteers build and prepare pollinator-friendly plant beds on the museum property. The Heritage Center will provide some gardening tools and gloves; participants may also bring their own favorites (please mark with your name). 

Please check back for more event details, including times and when a local beekeeper will be on site. 

Location: Oberlin Heritage Center grounds
