NIAGARA COLLEGE 36TH ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE 

BY BRUCE ZIMMERMAN

On March 20 and 21, 2003 the Niagara College Horticultural School held it's 36th Annual Open House. There were thousands of people in attendance over the two days.

These are some of the behind the scenes pictures I took as the students and staff prepared for their visitors just hours before they are to arrive.

Over the weekend the visitors where treated to the Muskoka Wildlife Center's animals. You got to see and touch some of the Baby Porcupine, Skunk, Snapping Turtle, Black Rat Snake, and a Barn Owl.
At the back of the Greenhouse there was Wine Tasting. The wine was made by the Staff and students of the Vintner's Course at Niagara College and Brock University.
The highlight of the Open House House as always was the great priced plants.
In the main building were the displays by the Horticultural Industry , Horticultural Societies, Horticultural Students, and the students from the Ecosystem Restoration Courses.
