Our speaker on Tuesday, June 21 at 7 p.m.
will be Steve Hogenmiller
, the Horticulture Supervisor at Tower Grove Park. Officially opened to the public in 1822 and now a National Historic Landmark, Tower Grove Park has been characterized as the largest and best preserved 19th-Century Gardenesque style city park in the United States. This formal landscape architectural style features winding paths, symmetrical features, intense planting and use of elaborate gates, pavilions, and houses. Come learn more! Steve will be giving us special insights about the park that the average person does not know.
Held at Missouri Botanical Garden's Ridgeway Center in the Beaumont Room at 7 pm, SLWGS monthly meetings are free to members & non-members. We hope to see you there!
