Bertie’s Tea


  • September 23, 2017
    2:00pm - 4:00pm


Come celebrate the legacy of Arboretum co-founder Bertie Dawes’ avid interest in gardening and nature.  Featured speaker and Arboretum Botanist David Brandenburg, Ph.D. will discuss wildflowers and the species that Bertie enjoyed at The Arboretum and at the family’s Canadian property.  Tea will be served in the Firelight Room with tea sandwiches and desserts as you make new friends.  A wagon will take guests to the Fossil Trail for an optional look at autumn wildflowers found at The Arboretum.

A one-year Sugar Maple membership to The Arboretum is included with the non-member registration fee.

September 19, 2017 is the deadline to register for Bertie’s Tea.  Please join us!
