1:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Join us for a delightful afternoon exploring the grounds of the Blithewood estate on Bard College campus. Guided outdoor tours provide an immersive experience into the history of Blithewood Garden and Arboretum as well as the horticultural and cultural significance of the site. Learn about the historic plantings, architecture, and what's in bloom. Enjoy the natural splendor of the grand landscape overlooking the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. Tours will be provided by Blithewood Garden and Arboretum and Garden Conservancy staff. Registration includes one gift of a starter plant for each registrant.
Bard College and the Garden Conservancy have partnered to preserve Blithewood as a cultural resource. At over 100 years old, Blithewood has been greatly diminished by the passage of time. Together, we are working to return this iconic garden to its grandeur. All proceeds from this event will support the rehabilitation of Blithewood Garden.
