Sara Baker Michalak's studio


The Audubon Community Nature Center will hold a wildflower garden walk and studio tour from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 11 at 10390 Chestnut Road, Dunkirk. 

The cost is $40.

Paid reservations are required by Saturday, May 4.

Participants will enjoy a private tour of the native gardens and art studio of botanical artist, Sara Baker Michalak.

In time for Mother’s Day weekend and the blooming of the spring ephemerals, native plant expert and artist Sara Baker Michalak invites visitors to her unique home alongside Canadaway Creek near Fredonia. Past spring tours have featured several species of trillium, dwarf crested iris, woodland phlox, foam flower and colorful wood poppies. A variety of native grasses are also a highlight of this well-tended creekside garden. Due to Mother Nature’s whim, and spring weather, the exact varieties in bloom vary.

The program will include light refreshments including wildflower teas and locally sourced sweets. The one-acre property is also home to Sara’s art studio, where she creates mixed media imagery. Her work can be found online.
