Public Programs

Lincoln Memorial Garden offers many educational programs throughout the year. Please check the event calendar for specific dates and times.

Maple Syrup Time Demonstrations (Late Feb-Mid March)
Bring the family out and experience the old fashioned process of maple sugaring with one of the Garden’s naturalists. You will see firsthand the maple trees being tapped and sap collected. Then you will visit the sugar shack to see the evaporation process of reducing the sap down into delicious maple syrup. Most of this program is outside, so please dress accordingly.

Wildflower hikes (Mid April-Early May)
These hikes are the perfect opportunity to experience the beauty of spring at Lincoln Memorial Garden. On these naturalist-led hikes, you will learn to identify many of the species of native wildflowers and blossoming trees present in the Garden. Be sure to come back again as no two weeks are ever the same.

Spring/Fall Bird Hikes
Catch a fascinating glimpse of migrating birds with our volunteer birding expert Kevin Veara. Hikes are free and open to birders of all skill levels

Leaf ID Hikes (September)
These hikes are designed to help students collect specimens for school assigned leaf collections. Hikes are led by a Garden Naturalist, who will identify and distribute leafs to each participant.

Special Topics (year round)
