April 24: 


Join Chad Clink, the Arboretum's community forester, to discuss the importance of sustainable urban and community forestry in creating healthy cities. The history of Arbor Day provides us with a case study and a call to action- what are we doing to continue the rich legacy of trees in communities? Join us for the ceremonial tree planting at 10am

May 15

Natalie Gertz-Young, Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District, and Christina Znidarsic, watershed coordinator at Chagrin River Watershed Partners, will discuss how the water run off of your driveway, street, and lawn contributes to non-point source pollution in the form of storm water. They will discuss a few changes to our behaviors and attitudes that can reduce this and show us some real world examples.

May 29

Teri Cole-Lang, the Arboretum's lead horticulturist, will be our guide as we tour the rhododendron garden to see how things are shaping up this year.   

June 3

Ann Rzepka, one of the Arboretum's horticulturists, will lead us through the twists and turns of Holden’s Myrtle S. Holden Wildflower Garden.  Visit some of the new lovely bent twig bridges that have been installed along the way.  Get an idea for your own gardening project. 


Bring a friend to Fridays in the Garden and introduce them to all the beauty Holden has to offer.
