Plants and the Winter Solstice

Friday, December 22, 2023 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Brian C. Nevin Welcome Center
124 Comstock Knoll Road, Ithaca, NY 14850

As the sun reaches its lowest arc in our sky, signaling the longest night (and shortest daytime) of the year, come join us for a special tour of the Mullestein Winter Garden. Learn how some plants cope with winter’s cold, discover a variety of plants with winter beauty, and learn some of the cultural lore surrounding plants associated with the Winter Solstice. After the walk, we’ll savor some refreshments in the warmth of the Nevin Welcome Center. The tour will be offered twice; please sign up for either the morning or afternoon tour.  In the event of inclement weather, the program will be held indoors.
