DISCOVER OUR GREEN: BATON ROUGE PUBLIC GARDEN TOUR
Sunday, November 6, 2016
Without a doubt, Baton Rouge has some of the most beautiful public gardens in the state of Louisiana! On Sunday, November 6th from 1-5pm, Hilltop’s fall garden tour will feature our place of course the LSU Hilltop Arboretum, Cohn Arboretum, Botanic Garden at Independence Park and Windrush Gardens. Each garden has a unique history, mission, design, plant collections and plans for their future development. This will be the perfect opportunity to see all the gardens in the fall season and learn more about each one from the staff and volunteers that will be out and about.
Refreshments will be served at the LSU Hilltop Arboretum throughout the tour. Plants and other garden items will be available for sale at some of the gardens during the afternoon of the tour, which will be a fundraiser for each facility.
We are most grateful to BREC and Burden Museum and Gardens for partnering with Hilltop to bring you this very special event. You will be able to start the tour at any of the four gardens featured. Complete garden descriptions, tour map, and tickets ($20) for students (with ID) $10 will be available in October. Tickets will also be sold at each garden the day of the tour.
