We are delighted to announce that Marc E. Zukovich will start off our new year. Marc has become one of the GCHP's favorite guest speakers, having wowed us in the past with programs including "Gardening with Deer" and "How to Design the Mixed Border". This time Marc will speak on "Exceptional Fall Trees and Shrubbery", presenting an informative and entertaining lecture on the best trees and shrubs for fall and winter interest. Learn how to choose the best plants for your site, how to incorporate them into your landscape, and perhaps most importantly, how to take care of them for years of enjoyment.
