Summer Garden Tours for Groups

What brings you to the garden? A love of plants? Hearing about the historic landscape? Spending time with family and friends? Then, one of the Arboretum's Garden Tours will be perfect for you.  We have a Horticulture & History Tour, filled with fun facts about seasonal blooms, heirloom trees and RRA's fascinating past. There's also the extraordinary Day at Two Gardens Tour, where you enjoy a morning tour at RRA, stop for lunch at a local restaurant (some offer discounts to RRA tours!), and then proceed to the beautiful Greenwood Gardens. We can also tailor our tours to reflect the interests of your book club, school, scout or corporate group. For more information or to register, please contact Trish Cassin, at t.cassin@reeves-reedarboretum.org
