Want to hone your gardening, and birding skills? The fourth annual Dig-In Algoma Garden Show is set for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 4 at the Algoma Youth Club Gym, 640 Lake St. Admission is free, and food and beverage are available throughout the day in support of the Kewaunee County 4-H Club.

The show will feature a variety of area vendors showcasing lawn and garden related products and services, along with hourly presentations on gardening and birding, the birding being new to the event this year in support of Algoma's recent designation as a Bird City Wisconsin community.

? 10 a.m., Roy and Charlotte Lukes - "Birds & Wildflowers of Northeastern Wisconsin." A colorful program showing many of the birds and wildflowers found in our part of the state.

? 11 a.m., Margaret Mary Gerhard - "Yardening." A blissful yard/gardening wedding for a more eco-friendly, edible and more productive - not destructive - yard.

? 1 p.m., Margaret Mary Gerhard - "Avian Art Adventure," a bird art project limited to the first 25 people. Paint, stain and embellish your own favorite fine feathered friend using recycled materials.

? 2 p.m., Mary and Dale Goodner - "Shake n Bake Landscape." Make your yard bird- and butterfly-friendly. Convert lawn to colorful, vibrant habitat, quickly and easily. Take a photographic tour through the process.
