BAR HARBOR — On Monday, July 22 at 4:00pm, Dr. Abraham Miller-Rushing will speak at the Beatrix Farrand Society’s Garland Farm in Bar Harbor on how the timing of phenological events (cyclical natural phenomena such as flower bloom, bird arrival, and leaf fall) are changing in response to climate change. He will discuss what these changes mean for people and ecosystems, focusing on Acadia, and the vital role that gardens continue to have in our understanding of phenology and climate change. Dr. Miller-Rushing is the Science Coordinator for Acadia National Park.

The talk will be held in the restored barn at Garland Farm. The historic property was the final home of noted landscape architect Beatrix Farrand and now showcases her restored gardens and horticultural library.

Suggested donation: $10 for members, $20 for non-members. Students attend for free. Pre-registration required; contact Visit for directions and more information.

The Beatrix Farrand Society is a nonprofit organization founded to foster the art and science of horticulture and landscape design, with emphasis on the life and work of Beatrix Farrand.
