About this event

Join Trish Lindemann, Untermyer Gardens Conservancy's Education and Outreach Officer, on a one-hour tour of the trees starting at the Vista and continuing through the Ruin Garden.

Untermyer Gardens spans over 43 acres and features a wide variety of trees, as well as perennials and shrubs, fountains, sculptures, and more. On this tour, we will focus on the Vista, Color Gardens, Rhododendron Walk and Ruin Garden, and discuss more than twenty tree specimens. We will look at large and small trees, some mature and some newly planted.

During the tour, Trish will describe each tree, including its structure, leaf, seeds, and other unusual characteristics, as well as its historical significance and design purpose in the garden. Feel free to ask questions and learn more about the trees that you find most interesting or noteworthy. We will also take some time to appreciate their beauty! Don't miss this chance to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the stunning specimens in Untermyer Gardens.

Trish Lindemann came to Untermyer Gardens as a volunteer in 2016 and joined the Conservancy staff in 2021 as Education and Outreach coordinator. She has a degree in Horticulture from Cornell University and studied at Longwood Gardens. Trish has worked for the New York City Parks Department and Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

About the organizer out our website.

The Untermyer Gardens Conservancy is dedicated to the revitalization of Samuel Untermyer’s once great gardens, now a City municipal park in Yonkers, New York. Working with the City of Yonkers, the Conservancy will showcase exuberant horticulture in the magnificent landscape designed by Welles Bosworth in 1916. An emphasis on the lives of Samuel and Minnie Untermyer will deepen the appeal and meaning of these gardens for all people.
