The Geri Bauer Gallery will burst into bloom with the paintings of Sag Harbor landscape designer and artist Muriel Hanson Falborn, a dedicated proponent of using native plants in home landscape and garden settings. Her special series, “Native Plants: Your Yard’s Beautiful Friends,” will be on view along with a selection of additional floral still life pieces from her collection. The exhibit will continue through March 31.

Muriel, an ardent East End environmentalist who received her Master of Arts in painting from C. W. Post, has had her work appear in shows on the East End and other Long Island locales, most recently at the Kramoris Gallery.

At 4:00, the Peconic Estuary Program will talk about incorporating native plants in home gardens and yards using grants from the PEP Home Rewards Program. Projects like installing native plant gardens and rain gardens or using rain barrels to catch rainwater for reuse can earn up to $500 to offset expenses for homeowners in the Peconic Estuary watershed area. Learn all about this program and how to apply.

Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and the Peconic Estuary Program and is open to all. Refreshments will be served
