Springtime Private Tour & Lunch with Dr. Patrick McMillan

June 23 & 24 ▪ 10am-1pm

If you’re ready to get outside and enjoy beautiful gardens, we hope you’ll join us for a private tour of Heronswood. These are some of the first tours to be led by our new Director, Dr. Patrick McMillan, formerly of the South Carolina Botanical Garden, and host of the popular PBS series, Expeditions with Patrick McMillan.

Not only will the tour explore Heronswood’s famous Woodland Garden and Potager, but visitors will be welcomed to our latest attraction, the x̣ə́w̕əs shəyí (‘new life’) Renaissance Garden. Filled with ferns and other fine plants, this garden explores the history of the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe, which owns the garden. Lunch is included. You’ll also receive a special plant from Heronswood to take home. Tour size limited to 15.
