About the Lake Mahopac Garden Club...
We are a group of dedicated individuals who want to beautify our town, encourage civic planting, and learn new ideas about native plants, landscaping, birds and flower design. We meet once a month usually on a Tuesday afternoon at member's homes, the Mahopac Public Library, and Sycamore Park.
Our programs include interesting speakers on varied topics relating to design and horticulture.
We usually take several trips to nearby gardens, herb fairs, and horticulture shows.
