Thanks to the generosity of the homeowners who opened their beautiful gardens, the hard work of many volunteers, and perfect weather, the 17th annual Croton Arboretum Garden Tour raised nearly $4,000. The annual tour also included a sale of plants donated by local gardeners.

The garden tour is the main fund-raising event for our volunteer, non-profit organization, which provides environmental stewardship for 20+ acres of wetlands and woods at the Jane E. Lytle Arboretum in Croton-on-Hudson. In addition to regular maintenance and educational programs the income will support restoration projects in the Arboretum, which suffered major damage during storms in the last few years.

"We want to thank everyone who helped make this year's tour such a success," said Arboretum President, Karen Jescavage-Bernard. "We hope everyone will visit the Arboretum this summer, to enjoy our boardwalk and trails."
