Our Weekend Picks: Pollinator Gardens, Family Day at the Art Museum and More

Saturday May 12
It’s gardening season, and one of the things we’ve been thinking about as we plant is how to make our native pollinators happy. Mercer County Parks is ready to show local gardeners just that, with ‘Your Wild Yard,’ a workshop at the Hunt Barn on Blackwell Road. Wear long pants, a hat, and garden shoes to get hands on and learn about planting a native pollinator garden. Gloves and tools provided. $5, 9am. www.mercercountyparks.org

We love taking the little Scoops to the Princeton University Art Museum, and Saturday looks like it will be another fun outing! The museum hosts ‘Family Day: Line, Shape, Color,” a drop in event that includes art projects, stories, games, scavenger hunts, live performances, refreshments and more for the whole family! FREE, 10am-4pm. artmuseum.princeton.edu

Go on the hunt for wild edibles at Cherry Grove Farm’s “Forage the Farm” event. Start by scouring the meadows and fields for wild edibles, then use your ingredients for a ‘forest to fork’ style dinner! $65, 1pm. www.cherrygrovefarm.com

Sunday May 13
Join the Friends of Princeton Open Space for a Mother’s Day Open House at the Mountain Lakes House! Enjoy tea and cookies on the stone terrace, then pick up a map for a self-guided stroll through the Mountain Lakes Preserve. FREE, 2pm. www.fopos.org
