About this Event
Come join us for a day in the Meadow Garden. Come once. Come often.
Meadow Days offer plenty of opportunities for fun and discovery. Longwood experts will be on hand to answer questions and share the story of the Meadow Garden's flora and fauna as you explore more than three miles of walking trails, embark on a nature seek-and-find for kids, and more. Natural Lands Trust staff and volunteers will share tips and answer questions about ways you can bring the extraordinary beauty of a meadow into your own backyard.
Throughout our Meadow Days events, Longwood Gardens is proud to partner with Natural Lands Trust, a regional land conservation organization with decades of experience planting and maintaining meadows on their nature preserves.
