Spring Seasonal Gathering Tour

Join the Friends of the Tanger Arboretum for their Spring Seasonal Gathering Tour on Saturday, May 4 at 11am. Horticulturist Jeffrey (Jeff) Hazlett will lead attendees on a walking tour through the Arboretum for a glimpse at what’s new, blooming, or to come with the approach of warmer, sunnier months. In particular, attendees will learn about the many flowering trees on the grounds, the pollinator gardens, and the two recognized Pennsylvania Champion Trees that call the Arboretum home!
