NEW: Tower Hill the Place to Be for Arbor Day

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

 

Tower Hill Botanic Garden is in full bloom for Arbor Day, inviting people to celebrate the weekend of April 27-29 with tree plantings, pruning demos and walking tours.

The incentive for first-time visitors is tempting: The first 25 to pass through the gate each day will receive a free tree sapling to plant at home.

The fun kicks off Friday at 12 p.m. with a pruning demonstration by local arborist Joe Biagioni. At 2 p.m. Joann Vieira, director of horticulture, will lead a tree planting. Turn out on Saturday at 11 a.m. for an illustrated lecture by Matthew “Twig” Largess entitled “Forest Journey.” Largess will examine champion trees and wilderness areas around the country. The lecture is free with paid admission. On Sunday, Biagioni heads another pruning demonstration at 12 p.m. A guided tour of the garden will be offered at 2 p.m. Sunday and kids will also be able to take part in a self-guided Arbor Day scavenger hunt.

Regular admission includes all Arbor Day Weekend activities and is $12 for adults, $9 for seniors and $7 for kids 6-18. Children under 6 are free. All Worcester County Horticultural Society (WCHS) members are also free. Tower Hill Botanic Garden is located at 11 French Drive, Boylston, MA, exit 24 off Route 290.
