Horticulture Tours

Each year, the staff of the Conservancy host several Greenway Horticulture Tours intended for groups that are interested in gardening and the plants of The Greenway!

These walking tours begin at 10:00am and run to 1:00pm, and can accommodate three groups. Each group will be paired with Conservancy staff members and make their way through The Greenway, learning about horticulture, history, programs, public art, and more!

Our 2017 tour dates are: 

  • Thursday, July 13th (raindate July 14th)--also open to individuals! Register here
  • Thursday, September 21st (raindate September 22nd) 

Tours typically start at either the North End Parks or Chinatown Park and are one-way. We ask for a donation of $10/person for group tours. Please contact volunteer@rfkgc.org for more information or to express interest.
