Autumn Landscape Hike

October 3, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Embrace the harvest season by exploring 26 acres and over 125 years of history during Brucemore’s Autumn Landscape Hike.  Witness the subtle and spectacular dressings of the autumnal landscape highlighted by the dusky plum and rusty barn red colors of the season. Discover current landscape issues, the role of public use, and the seasonal chores required to preserve the historic grounds. See how planting choices with sensitivity to native species and seasonal display affect the overarching impact of a landscape design. Seek advice from Brucemore gardeners and ask questions on topics ranging from particular plantings to landscape designs.
