Lambertville Goes Wild (LGW)

Lambertville Goes Wild will sponsor a three-part learning series "Learn to Landscape: Dream, Design, and Detail" at the Lambertville Public Library, 6 Lily Street, Lambertville, New Jersey.

Lauren Kovacs, LLA, a landscape architect with over ten years of experience in sustainable landscape design, will guide participants through their design practice: from dreaming up a garden style, through designing useful spaces, to understanding installation details.

Please register in advance at LambertvilleGoesWild@gmail.com to save your place; space is limited to 20 participants per session. Attendance at all 3 sessions is preferred but not required. Please indicate which sessions you will attend in your email.


Session 1 - DREAM - Saturday, February 24, from 10:30 a.m.12 p.m.
Learn basic garden styles and how to build your design palette. Not "a creative type"? No problem! Participants will learn where to look for and how to catalog project styles and elements. This session will also provide detailed instructions on how to create a base map of your property for use in the following Design session.

Session 2 - DESIGN - Saturday, March 24, from 10:30 a.m.12 p.m.
Learn how to create a functional home landscape. In this session, participants will learn how to prioritize and plan project spaces and elements. From hardscape and garden beds to arbors and umbrellas, learn to visualize your garden in three dimensions to create your own sense of place.

Session 3 - DETAIL - Saturday, April 28, from 10:30 a.m.12 p.m.
In this hands-on workshop, get help combining your style(s), favorite elements, and desired spaces into a harmonious composition. Bring your images, sketches, and questions to Lauren and her team for personalized advice. From detailing and installing a patio to choosing the right plants for your garden, our team can get you on the path to a final garden design and realistic implementation plan.

Lambertville Goes Wild is a volunteer group working to promote wider use of native plants as a key part of its aim to certify Lambertville as a Community Wildlife Habitat recognized by the National Wildlife Federation. To reach our goal, several public spaces, such as parks and schools, and about 100 private properties need to support native species such as butterflies, birds, and bees by providing food, water, cover, and places to raise young.

Lambertville Goes Wild is reaching out to the residents of Lambertville to encourage and assist them in certifying their properties.

Judith Marchand and David Horowitz's collaborative
"Modern Fossils" presents
River Fossils

Modern Fossils presents "River Fossils"


Mankind's interaction with it's natural environment is the basis and subject of this series. Just as natural fossils are the imprints of prehistoric life on earth, Judith and David have created "Modern Fossils": pieces that ponder the residue we are currently leaving behind in our environment, to be unearthed far in future.

The artists begin with the embellished metal stormdrain covers that are found on the curbsides of every street in their local river towns. From these they create plaster stormdrain castings, which represent our community's impact on the life-giving river and it's surrounding environment. The message on the castings is clear: "Dump No Waste, Drains To Waterways". This message proclaims the truth that the river's health and the management of its waters are the key to their community's existence and future.

David and Judith collect both natural offerings and manmade residue from the river and it's surrounding environment, which they use to adorn the castings and visually tell this story. The resulting artwork embodies the modern dilemma of mankind's struggle to maintain a balanced relationship with nature. Modern Fossils have their roots in Judith's love for the river and the rivertown community, combined with David's 20+ years of experience in sculpting and casting "Urban Fossils", environmental sculptures in NYC and around the world.
