Join the Friends of the Tanger Arboretum for an exciting bus tip to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens on Saturday, June 8!

Designed in 1897 by John Charles and Frederick Law Olmstead, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens (BBG) opened in May 1911 and today holds over 14,000 taxonomies of plants across 52 acres in Brooklyn, New York City. The Garden is most well-known for its Cherry Blossoms, but also features over 14 other wonderful gardens, pavilions, and collections, including the C.V. Starr Bonsai Museum. This trip is at-your-own pace, and attendees will have about five hours to enjoy the gardens on their own before departure. To see what will be blooming in June, please click here, or click here to view a Bloom Calendar PDF.

The coach bus will depart LancasterHistory (230 N. President Ave. in Lancaster, PA) at 6:30am on Saturday, June 8 and arrive at the BBG around 10am. The bus departs the gardens at 3pm, returning to LancasterHistory around 6:30pm.

Tickets are $85 per person and includes admission to the BBG, coach bus transportation, and driver gratuity. Meals are not included, so attendees are responsible for dining on their own. (The BBG does have dining options.) Attendees are recommended to wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and bring their own water bottles.

To register for the trip, please click here to purchase your tickets online or call (717) 392-4633, ext. 133 to register over the phone. This trip is open to everyone to attend, but tickets are required.
