National Public Gardens Day
Taltree Celebrates National Public Gardens Day

May 10, 2013

Have you ever wondered how Arborists care for trees over 100 feet tall? Come watch Taltree’s Certified Arborist do a climbing demo and educate you on how he cares for the many trees in the Arboretum. Visit the Porter County Master Gardeners booth and ask your plant-related questions. Buy a lovely plant for a Mother’s Day gift and bring the kids out for some arts and crafts! Plan on staying for a grilled lunch to enjoy in our picnic areas. Visit our website for more information.


Fairy House Exhibit

During the month of May, take a walk around Heron Trail and the Pavilion Gardens and enjoy fairy houses crafted from natural materials along with whimsical garden displays.
