This project is made possible with funds from the restart NY regrants 2021-22 mini-grant program, a regrant program of the New York state Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.


Ten varieties of native flowering plants have been chosen to benefit pollinators that live in the Adirondacks. All plants will be ready to plant directly in your garden and to thrive during their first season. Each plant has been carefully sourced or grown from seed to ensure that they have never come in contact with neonicotinoids (a class of insecticides that are harmful to pollinators). Whether you plant a few plants or many, you will help rebuild the monarch butterfly population, attract hummingbirds, and strengthen native bee and moth populations.

All proceeds of the sale support pollinator habitat conservation by the Adirondack Pollinator Project, a project of AdkAction in partnership with The Wild Center, and Paul Smith’s College.

Thanks to the Uihlein Foundation, the Pollinator Project is able to grow the plants at the Uihlein Farm Greenhouse in Lake Placid, and you will be able to pick them up at the greenhouse during Plant Sale Days on May 28 and June 18. Please contact if you need to make alternate arrangements for plant pick-up.

Visit HERE to pre-order your plants.

Live Theater this Saturday!

Baal and Dix

Saturday, May 21, 8 pm

Theater-lovers: Join us for a live theater performance with an art-party vibe to experience Die-Cast’s newest work, Baal and Dix – a true episodic romp around the Recovery Lounge.

Between rousing beer hall songs, delicate movement sequences, riotous docudrama facts, and intimate scene work, this immersive theater extravaganza looks at prominent artists of the Weimar Republic, upturning genre and identity through the lens of time.

Audiences are not confined to their seats and are free to make their own way through the space and the story. You may just find yourself in a waltz with a performer, toasting with a secret shot, or engaged in a private monologue.

More info and tickets HERE.

Upper Jay Art Center, 12198 Old Rte 9N, Upper Jay
