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.

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.

Wednesday, May 30, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm – Esplanade Tree Care Management and Succession Plan Presentation

Over the last several years, the Esplanade Association has focused its efforts heavily on the health of the park’s more than 1,700 trees. In fall 2017, EA worked in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and a project consultant (Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture) to draft a comprehensive Esplanade Tree Care Management and Succession Plan. The plan will build on the existing 2015 tree inventory to create a multi-year maintenance and planting plan, ensuring a healthy tree canopy for future generations. The Garden Club of the Back Bay contributed to the inventory of trees. The Association is delighted to present the draft of this plan for your review and comment. Please join us on Wednesday, May 30 from 5:30pm to 6:30 pm at Fisher College’s Alumni Hall to learn more and share your feedback. RSVP to info@esplanadeassociation.org.
