Shearing of the Heather Gardens

Come to Fort Tryon Park to share in the experience of this annual rite of spring, shearing of the heather. Members of the Northeast Heather Society and Fort Tryon garden staff will shear the heather while visitors take tours of the garden, learn what is so special about heaths and heathers, hear Scottish bagpipes, and join Skraptacular in collaging spring gardens on thick matt board rescued from a local framer's recycle bin, colorful scraps of paper and pictures from gardening magazines. Saturday, April 11th from 10 AM-12 PM
