Join us for a tour of the Mountain Top Arboretum in Tannersville, NY.

We will meet with our guide Marc Wolf, the Director of Horticulture, at the Education Center and explore the building first. This timber-frame construction was built using twenty-one species of native trees from the Arboretum’s forest. From here we will explore the landscape surrounding the center, planted exclusively with species native to the Catskills. Designed by Jamie Purinton of the Hudson Valley, this landscape also features six interconnected rain gardens. The tour will then proceed to the West Meadow area which includes another Rain Garden, the Bird Cove and Spiral Labyrinth. Of special note in this area is a new 1.5-acre meadow designed by Larry Weaner. This is the meadow’s second growing season and hopefully we’ll see biennials such as Black-eyed Susan in full bloom.

For those with the time and energy, we encourage you to continue exploring with a self-directed tour of the Woodland Walk, East Meadow and Spruce Glen.

Registration is required with a limit of 20 people. Address will be sent to all who register. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter to receive program announcements. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
