February 28, 2020 @ 5:00PM — 6:00PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Thank you for your interest in our community programs! Though Hermitage programs are free, there are costs associated with presenting them, including the sound system so you can hear well, marketing so you know about the programs, staff to create the programs for you, performance facilities, and artist housing. When you register, please give generously to these educational, entertaining, touching, and often inaugural performances.
RESTORING COASTAL ECOLOGY, AND CREATING A SENSE OF PLACE

Michael will share his vision for the restoration of the Hermitage acreage, including the “Preserve,” which contains three distinct habitats; coastal hammock, dune and wetlands.
