About this event

Horticultural Highlights of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries

Thursday, October 21, 7:00 - 8:30pm

Presented by Mackenzie Knight-Fochs, Program Manager, Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries

Incorporated in 1836 and 1869 respectively, historic Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries are non-profit, non-denominational cemeteries that combine to create a 265-acre arboretum and outdoor sculpture garden rich in cultural and social history. The cemeteries continue to serve families in their time of tragedy and loss, provide beautiful open space for outdoor respite and healthy activity, and are anchor institutions in the community. Join Mackenzie Knight-Fochs for a virtual visit to explore horticultural highlights of these two cemeteries, including a one-of-a-kind rock garden, a SITES Gold landscape for green burials, State Champion trees, and the final resting places of notable horticulturists.

Free of charge; registration is required. This lecture will be held virtually. A link and viewing instructions will be emailed after your registration is complete.
