Dear Members & Friends,
Each season brings its own beauty to the Pine Hollow Arboretum. Whether exploring the trails, taking in the blossoms, or simply relaxing, a new discovery awaits you with each visit to our 25-acre preserve. To mark the arrival of spring, we invite our members and friends to join us to celebrate nature’s renewal on Sunday, May 5th for our 2013 Open House from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at 16 Maple Avenue in Slingerlands for walking tours, family fun and refreshments.
Our Open House will feature a magnificent display of magnolias & azaleas, which bloom throughout the month of May. Dr. John Abbuhl will be on hand to lead a tour of the grounds. A self-guided tour is available to those who wish, on their own, to explore the trails, groves and 12 wild life ponds. This season, we will add over 50 new plants to the 3,350 trees in the collection. We are open dawn to dusk for visitors to enjoy the longer days.
Experience the Arboretum, become a supporting member, or renew at your current expiration date. Your contributions support proper care and upkeep of the grounds and environmentally conscientious preservation of the horticultural collection.
Enjoy the peace, tranquility and especially, the trees. We look forward to a wonderful season, and hope that you will drop by for our Open House on May 5th and experience for yourself the ways in which your support helps sustain “trees in a natural environment”.
Dr. John W. Abbuhl
