I mistyped the date for "A Photographers Eye" in the email newsletter sent out this afternoon. The correct date is Saturday, July 10th (not the 19th as I erroneously typed). Sorry for the confusion.

Happy 4th of July

The weather has cooperated to give us a glorious start to the summer season. We have lots going on at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum this summer. Here are a few of the special things you won't want to miss.

In the meantime, have a wonderful 4th of July Holiday.

A Photographers Eye!

There is still time to register for "A Photographer's Eye," taught by award-winning garden photographer, Alan L. Dietrick. Garden photography has its own rules and Alan will explain them to you in his presentation scheduled for Saturday, July 10th (***NOTE CORRECTED DATE***), from 1pm - 3pm.

You may see many of his images on display in the Haggerty Center gallery throughout July.
