Coming soon . . .

On Wednesday, June 1st, at 7 p.m. the Arboretum and the Croton Free Library will show the award-winning documentary Queen of the Sun, which explores the phenomenon of Colony Collapse Disorder, in which bees disappear from hives en masse. The film describes the struggles of beekeepers and scientists to understand and address this catastrophic loss of bees, which are vital to agriculture. It also shows the mysterious world of the beehive and covers 10,000 years of bee-keeping.

Presentation at the Library

The Arboretum and the Croton Free Library are cosponsoring Gardens Filled with Life: Designing with Northeastern Flora, a presentation by author and landscape designer Carolyn Summers. Carolyn will offer striking garden designs that use native plants and will reveal the many ways indigenous plants support the food web and create a healthy, sustainable landscape. Her designs feature underutilized and uncommon native plants that beautifully replace traditional invasive exotics. Currently a professor at Westchester Community College, Carolyn Summers is the author of Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East (Rutgers University Press, 2010). Friday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m. Free admission.

It’s spring . . . and we’re growing!

Two Arboretum regulars try out the new 60+ foot extension of the Aboretum's boardwalk. The project used material left over from our 2010 extension, plus new material, and was paid for with funds raised by our annual garden tour. Thanks to Dan Ferguson and his crew for working in cold weather to get this done.
