The dog days of summer are upon us...

... time to watch and harvest our beautiful gardens!

Gardening Positions at Frelinghuysen & Willowwood Arboreta

Help keep the gardens beautiful by passing our Positions Open link on to someone who may be interested in a paid gardening position with the Morris County Park Commission. Full details may be found there.

Flower Power Family Day

Last Sunday’s Flower Power Family Day was great fun!

Here’s an image from our parade (click on it for a larger version) – kids and parents had a great time decorating their wagons for the parade.

Thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible, and a special thank you to board member, Jennifer Basile. Thanks as well to the Puppeteers Cooperative, the Levins and select members of the East Hanover High School Marching Band. Many more images will follow shortly in our gallery.

Walking Tours

If you have company in from out of town, perhaps they would enjoy a free walking tour of the Frelinghuysen Aboretum on Sunday, August 4 at 2pm. Click on the title for more information.

Other Fun Events

  • The Mum Society meets on Friday, August 2nd at 7:30pm – “Perennials – Divide and Conquer.”
  • The Photo Scavenger Hunt for August is “That’s So Cool.”
  • Chef Cynthia Triolo cooks up a storm (and we hope that’s the only one we see this August) in “Cooking Greens” on Wednesday, August 21st, part of our “Grow, Cook, Eat" series.

In the meantime, watch the bees and butterflies and enjoy these summer days.

What's in Bloom At the Arboretum

The Arboretum is overflowing with color and so too is our on-line What's in Bloom list, maintained by volunteer Phil Dahlen. It is updated every other week.
