Tuesday, June 12, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm – Serenity on the Hudson at Wave Hill

Join the staff of Berkshire Botanical Garden for a special tour of Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center in the Bronx overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades. With a notable tree collection serving as the cornerstone of the landscape, Wave Hill consists of 13 designed garden areas on 28 acres. An aquatic garden hugged with tropical plants. A wild garden championed by William Robinson offers winding pathways and spectacular river views. A conservatory filled with ferns, bromeliads, rainforest cacti plus The Cactus and Succulent House which displays plump and spiny plants from arid regions of the world. And the Elliptical Garden featuring primarily native plants using a formal design pattern. This trip, a great way to spend a day with like-minded garden and art lovers, is not to be missed.
