What

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.  Learn about the unusual flower structure and pollination strategies of members of the daisy family, found throughout Ohio's native ecosystems.  These wildflowers are in bloom throughout the growing season, although they are most conspicuous in the autumn when fields become awash in the fall colors of goldenrods, sunflowers and asters.

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