Friday, June 29, 5:00 pm – Cocktails in Great Gardens – Kinderhook, New York

Berkshire Botanical Garden again hosts its Cocktails in Great Gardens series, and on Friday, June 29 at 5 pm, they will be in a private garden in Kinderhook, New York. An allée of mature maple trees welcomes you to the home and gardens at this lovely Kinderhook, New York property. The main garden was conceived as a contained counterpoint to the surrounding farmland with a series of spaces, each with its own character. A kitchen garden of boxwood parterres and espaliered pears is planted with summer vegetables and herbs; the main lawn is enclosed by a boxwood and hornbeam hedge with a visual break revealing a view to the pond, fields, and mountains beyond.

Wednesday, July 18, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm – Tree Health Assessment

Jerry Bond, Urban Forestry Consultant, Urban Forest Analytics LLC, will lead Arnold Arboretum attendees through a new field protocol for obtaining quick and reliable estimates of tree health, a critical component of tree condition. He will introduce his process of observation, with emphasis on producing repeatable and useful results. After practicing techniques in the field, he will present the way field observations can be interpreted and transformed into reliable information for communicating to clients. Jerry will also stress understanding the limits of observation in order to guard against making assumptions. A second outdoor session will test real-world application of these methods. He will explain the biological foundation for his field protocol and end the program with the day-to-day utility of this approach within various work contexts. This class is based on the book, Urban Tree Health: A Practical and Precise Estimation Method, by Jerry Bond, published in 2012. Lunch will be provided. $150.

Wednesday, June 27, 7:30 pm – Encouraging Healthy Bird Population In Massachusetts

Birds are not only winged harbingers of spring, they are harbingers of healthy ecosystems. 2018 is the ‘Year of the Bird’ and new research exposes the critical role that farmland and other diverse habitats provide for birdlife. In New England, birds associated with grass- and shrublands represent some of the most treasured wildlife in Massachusetts, but they are also some of the most imperiled and rapidly declining bird groups. Most of these birds depend significantly on privately-owned lands, agricultural landscapes, and the efforts of individual landowners in order to survive.
