Dear Friends of Untermyer Gardens,
We are starting to trumpet the tenth anniversary of the Conservancy’s founding and our many accomplishments. Why do we consider TEN an important number/threshold? I can think of no better way to illustrate it than with a “digital” portrait of Timothy Tilghman, whose fingers have literally touched every aspect of the garden and shaped its renaissance. His rugged hands personify the “can-do” approach of the Conservancy.
Our tours and classes are ramping up with warmer weather at hand. Please check the schedule and reserve your place at these interesting and fun events. A special new offering is our Family Adventure Tours, which are geared to children ages 7-12. Three new tours, rotating weekly throughout the summer, will explore plants, mythology, architecture, sculpture, and ruins. All children must be accompanied by an adult and will engage with the garden in a fun and lively way.
Stephen F. Byrns
President, Untermyer Gardens Conservancy
