The blue bushes outside of the Pierson Library

Baptisia australis, commonly known as blue wild indigo or blue false indigo, is a flowering plant in the family Fabaceae (legumes). It is native to much of central and eastern North America and is particularly common in the Midwest, but it has also been introduced well beyond its natural range. Naturally it can be found growing wild at the borders of woods, along streams or in open meadows. The flowers vary in color from a light blue to a deep violet. They will bloom from spring to summer depending upon the region.

CSWD Waste Warriors Training

Tuesday 6/7 at 6:00 p.m.: CSWD Waste Warriors Training – Are you interested in reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill and having fun at the same time? Chittenden Solid Waste District (CSWD) comes to the Library to teach friendly and enthusiastic patrons how to help improve recycling and composting efforts at area events as a Waste Warrior! Certified Waste Warriors attend various local concerts, festivals, and other events as volunteers to help event attendees deposit their waste in the correct collection container. Attend this training to learn how your efforts can benefit the community!
