The Fenway Victory Gardens Est. 1942

Lizards in the Gardens!

Have you heard? The Fenway Victory Gardens are home to the Italian Wall Lizard! Colin Donihue, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in the department of organismic and evolutionary biology is in the gardens quite a bit studying our newest members. Colin taught a workshop earlier this year at one of our Third Thursday Potlucks on how to spot the lizards, their history, their diet, and he even had one for people to look at up close!

At Fensfest this year, Saturday September 9th from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Colin will have a table set up to answer any questions you may have and if we’re lucky – he’ll have caught a few for you to see!
