Field Trip to Wave Hill

Thursday, June 2

9:15 am - 3:30 pm

Please join the Rowayton Gardeners for a fabulous field trip to Wave Hill, a spectacular 28-acre site in the Riverdale section of the Bronx that includes public gardens, a greenhouse, an 8-acre woodland, and two houses on the property. Famous tenants have included Mark Twain, the Theodore Roosevelt family, and Arturo Toscanini.

Steven Conoway, Associate Director of Horticulture, will give us an overview and history of the property, and the extensive collection of over 4,000 varieties of unusual and rare trees, shrubs, and plants. Along the way, we’ll relish views of the Hudson River and Palisades.

After our tour of the gardens, we’ll enjoy boxed lunches on the Kate French Terrace, have some time to visit the shop at Wave Hill, and explore on our own. The trip will go, rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes for walking the grounds.
