Join us at Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens for a day of education and discovery. Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens’ 46 acres include a visitor's center, trails, a pond and stream, native trees, shrubs and wildflowers, azalea and rhododendron collections, a woodland garden featuring many spring ephemerals, and much more. Like any garden, there are unique management challenges here. Preserving the native species and keeping on top of invasives are just two obstacles encountered here. It is a great time of year to see the gardens, sharpen your professional skills, and learn “hands-on” tips to help manage pests in any setting.

Walter Hood at the Greene Space at WNYC
Walter Hood, ASLA, landscape architect, professor, and author, has been praised as a “community whisperer, creating spaces that have elements the residents want before they even know it.” His inclusive and innovative designs transform overlooked sites like street corners and highway underpasses into vital gathering spaces. His approach puts community members at the center of the design process, instead of treating them as an afterthought. Hood will talk about his career and process in the 2012 Bill's Design Talks series from the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
