Celebrate Earth Day at Wave Hill on April 22
Celebrate Mother Nature on a weekend filled with activities that will charm everyone from our youngest guest to the most seasoned garden visitor. Admission to the grounds is free all day Sunday , thanks to the generous support of Target.
Both days, join the Family Art Project for stories honoring our trees, and then create a portrait as your own tribute and fashion a tiny Earth Day charm or pin. Saturday’s highlights include a kid-friendly Earth Day Garden Walk , a Wave Hill History Walk and a guided Gallery Tour of the exhibition in Glyndor Galley—work by eight artists inspired by Wave Hill’s Wild Garden—and a workshop on planting your own alpine trough.
Sunday, enjoy a guided Garden & Conservatory Walk showcasing the delights of the early spring gardens, then stay for a Nature Journaling workshop and for Branch Dances at Wave Hill , a performance by award-winning choreographer Merián Soto and her dancers and musician, third in a series celebrating each season at Wave Hill. While you’re here, be sure to stop by The Shop at Wave Hill, where seeds—especially Philadelphia-based D. Landreth Seed Company’s exclusive zinnia assortment—are center stage. _____________________________________________________________________________________________
