We broke ground this past summer on a major, million-dollar garden project that will continue the reclamation and restoration of this historic landscape and will open to the public in the spring. This year also saw the arrival of the first class of Jay Fellows from Columbia University and a vibrant slate of virtual programs that included award-winning historians and renowned preservationists.
A commitment to sustainability: The gardens were designed by renowned landscape architect Thomas Woltz of Nelson Byrd Woltz and will be planted with largely native species, supporting local wildlife in this era of climate crisis and diminishing biodiversity. Above all, they will provide much-needed accessible green space—a beautiful venue for the community to use. The first phase will be complete by the end of 2020.
Support our mission: Your donation will help us complete and maintain this community treasure, as well as fund JHC's full slate of operating expenses and educational programs. We invite you to donate through our website or by mailing a check to Jay Heritage Center, 210 Boston Post Road, Rye, NY, 10580. To discuss legacy-giving options, please contact our executive director, Kevin Peraino, at firstname.lastname@example.org
