Visit HPS/MAG 2021 Grant Recipient Tyler Arboretum

Join us for a Members Only visit to 2021 Grant recipient, Tyler Arboretum in Media, PA. October 14th from 10:00 am to ~ 12:00 pm, or later if you stay to explore the arboretum. Rain Date October 21st from 10:00 am to ~ 12:00pm or later.

The visit is limited to 15 members. Cost is $ 5.00 per person. Registration and online payment is required. Click here to register. Registration closes on October 11th.

Plan to arrive at 10:00 am for a tour with Nancy Heinbaugh, Volunteer Coordinator and Julia Lo Ehrhardt, Director of Community Engagement.  We’ll begin with some of the gardens around the historic structures, including an 1833 Pennsylvania bank barn, a 1730’s family home and other outbuildings from the mid 1800’s including an 1871 greenhouse still in use today. We’ll look at some of the historic and champion trees as we head to the Butterfly House and Pollinator Garden. In 2021, HPS/MAG awarded Tyler Arboretum a grant to improve the Butterfly House and surrounding Pollinator Garden.

If time allows, we’ll visit Lucille’s Garden (our edible garden) and on through our Native Woodland Walk where the intent is to showcase the beauty and adaptability of native plants sheltered by the towering oaks, beeches and tulip trees.

You are invited to bring and enjoy your lunch at the picnic tables, take a break and continue to explore the arboretum at your leisure.
