Art and Nature Take Flight
If you’re about protecting the natural environment from the encroachment of development, you’ll want to know about the Peconic Land Trust – a non-profit organization that works to conserve Long Island’s working farms. And a sweet introduction is through their original birdhouse exhibition – Art and Nature Take Flight – which opens June 29th.
This is the second annual event, with two dozen talented local artists showing original birdhouses that they created just for the event. June 29th is the opening, where you can view, sip, snack and get first dibs on your favorite ones (yes, they’re all for sale, with rolling bids open until the closing event on August 17th.) It’s free to pop in, starting at 4 pm.
The birdhouse event is held at one of the Peconic Land Trust parcels, Bridge Gardens, a 5-acre gem in the heart of Bridgehampton. It’s a unique public and demonstration garden with a wide variety of perennials and annuals, a unique 4-quadrant herb garden and mysterious hedgerows. Other Peconic properties include Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, the Shellfisher Preserve and the agricultural Center at Charnews Farm, both in Southold.
