Woodland Glade Walk & Talk

A pathway meandering through a lush green landscape with tall towering conifer trees.
  • This event has passed.

Come walk and talk through the recently unveiled Woodland Glade from none other than the horticulturists who take pride in the design, planning, and installation of Mt. Cuba’s new entrance garden. From the soloists that wow to the chorus of ground-covering plants, and architectural backbone of the trees and shrubs, Susan Boss, senior horticulturist, and Serah Pesce, education specialist, will share the process and plant list behind creating the Woodland Glade.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Wednesday, May 10, 2023.
