Harkness Tree Walk
August 9, 2021 at 7 pm
Meeting location: Eolia Mansion, 275 Great Neck Road, Waterford, CT 06385

Join Connecticut College Arboretum assistant director Maggie Redfern on a walk looking at notable trees of Harkness Memorial State Park. Hundreds of beautiful trees grace the magnificent landscape, such as tuliptree, ginkgo, Japanese cypress, catalpa, horse chestnut, apples and several species of maple. Many are unusual horticultural varieties unseen in their mature form. We will look at the biggest and the oldest as well as more recent plantings that were designed to complement the historic landscape.
This is a walking tour, please wear appropriate footwear. The tour will take approximately 45 minutes to be followed by questions and refreshments at the mansion. No reservation is necessary. The program is free to members of Friends of Harkness and the Connecticut Arboretum, $5 for non members.

Please note programs are tentative depending on the latest COVID restrictions imposed by the Governor.
