Seeds of Music

October 6, 2023 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Seeds of Music, October 6, 3 PM, Dahlem Center, Free Event

Join violinist William Hagen for an event focused around music and nature, two universal languages that stir our emotions and benefit us all. William will explore the close connection between nature and the great music it has helped inspire, and will discuss his own efforts to spread the joy of music and nature, both at home and on the road.  Learn more about Seeds of Music.

William will be joined by Ellyn Meyers to explore ideas on how we individually can make positive impacts on the natural world around us, and bring the music of nature humming into our own backyards.

Ellyn brings her wealth of knowledge and background in horticulture and botanical garden management to Dahlem.  She was the Education Director at the New England Wild Flower Society, Director of campus Grounds and Gardens at the University of Nebraska and Director of Hidden Lake Gardens.  She was also an instructor of Horticulture at Lansing Community College. Ellyn has been a volunteer at Dahlem for several years, helping with school programs, summer camp, and events as well as maintaining the pollinator garden plot at the Community Gardens.  Growing native plants to encourage pollinators is a current passion of Ellyn’s.

The Seeds of Music program will take place outdoors in the children’s garden at Dahlem Environmental Education Center, 7117 South Jackson Rd., Jackson, MI 49201. Please dress for the weather.

This is a free event.
