Pratt House Pollinator Garden Storywalk®

July 7, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


The Essex Library, in partnership with Essex Land Trust and Essex Historical Society, will host a guided StoryWalk® at the Pratt House Pollinator Garden on July 7 at 4 PM.

Families are invited to explore the pollinator garden and Pratt House grounds, guided by Children’s Librarian Nicole Gaudreau and local pollinator expert Anne Penniman, while reading Flower Talk by Connecticut author Sara Levine. A self-guided version of the StoryWalk® will remain at the Pratt House through Monday July 10.

The Pratt House Pollinator Garden began in 2020 when a group of individuals representing the Essex Historical Society, Essex Land Trust, Essex Garden Club, Essex Sustainability Committee and River COG came together to establish a new pollinator garden. The garden contains a selection of 40 different varieties of native plants and perennials known to benefit native bees, birds and butterflies. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. An historic property of Essex Historical Society, Pratt House is open to the public for free guided tours, Saturday and Sunday afternoons through October 1, 1-4pm.

The event is free and open to families. Registration is highly encouraged. To register, call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. For more information about this event, please see https://www.youressexlibrary.org/

Pratt House is located at 19 West Ave in Essex. Parking is available at Essex Library and Essex Town Hall.
