  6. It's BOGO Time!

    Nov 2, 2021

    Dear Friends,

    Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens looked absolutely incredible this past growing season thanks to the hard work of our staff and volunteers.  Unfortunately, just today, we officially ended the annual growing season by pulling all of the annuals from the Cultivar Trials.  Ugh, that was hard for our volunteers to do as many of the plants still looked great and hadn’t been hit by a frost.  However, work must continue in the Arboretum and it had to be done!  Now we turn our attention to preparing for winter and renewing Chadwick memberships.

    Happy Harvest Moon and Fall Equinox

    Sep 23, 2021

    Dear Friends of Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens,

        We hope you enjoyed the full moon of the fall equinox this week.  According to tradition, the closeness of these two events leads us to call this moon the "Harvest Moon," though North American indigenous tribes use other descriptive nicknames like the "Barley Moon," the "Falling Leaves Moon," and the "Rutting Moon."
