Event Description

Discover current landscape issues, the role of public use, and the seasonal chores required to preserve the historic grounds amongst the subtle and spectacular seasonal dressings of the 26-acre landscape. See how planting choices with sensitivity to native species and seasonal display affect the overarching impact of a landscape design. Seek advice from Brucemore gardeners and ask questions on topics ranging from particular plantings to landscape designs.

Every Thursday night during April Brucemore will feature a different specialty tour focusing on topics for all interests, including arts and culture, Midwestern industry, gardening, landscape design, architecture, preservation, behind-the-scenes at Brucemore, and growing up in the early twentieth century.

Space is limited on each tour; advance ticket purchase recommended. Admission fees and further details are available at www.brucemore.org or by calling (319) 362-7375.
