Marjorie is ready to talk about

Marjorie is ready to talk about “Foliage Detecting”

The foliage season has begun, and with it comes “Foliage Detectives!” Our first program was at the Framingham (MA) Public Library, with ten more opportunities in the next month to learn how you too can become a foliage detective. Stop by and say hello at one of our upcoming programs. https://marjorieturner.com/schedule/
