Audubon Announces Secret Gardens Locations

Jamestown, NY –  “‘Spectacular’ is the only word to describe the 2014 Secret Gardens Tour,” said organizer Merle Szydlo, “and we can’t wait for everyone to be awed by our eight amazing gardens!”

Szydlo is confident that the Saturday, July 12, Tour presented by Jamestown Audubon will not only be the biggest ever but also the most interesting. “We have gardens from pocket size to palatial – and one that is a fallen barn turned into a sunken garden!” she added.

The gardeners and the locations of their hidden treasures are:

  • Dan and Sandy Nagurney – 796 Hunt Road, Lakewood
  • Dave Bull and Jack Hemink – 51 West Terrace Avenue, Lakewood
  • Sue Nordlund – 48 West 7th Street, WE, Celoron (Jamestown mailing address)
  • David Metzler – 34 Grant Street, Jamestown
  • Ruth Baker – 46 Grant Street, Jamestown
  • Barbara Kiddoo – 21 Spruce Street, Jamestown
  • Ron and Kathleen Healey – 37 Spruce Street, Jamestown
  • Maury and Susan Spillane – 39 Spruce Street, Jamestown

The Secret Gardens Tour extends from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

Maps to each of the gardens are provided with the ticket.

In addition to Jamestown Audubon, presale tickets can be purchased for $10 in Falconer (NY) at Robert’s Nursery (3172 Dry Brook Road); in Lakewood at Mike’s Nursery (199 E. Fairmount Ave.); and in Jamestown at Lake View Gardens (1259 North Main), Peterson Farm (3206 Fluvanna Ave.), Secret Garden Flower Shop (79 Allen Street), and Stillwater Garden Market (1445 Foote Avenue).

Tickets for $12 can be purchased at the participating gardens on the day of the tour.

Water and non-melting snacks will be available at the West Terrace (Lakewood), Celoron, 46 Grant Street, and Spruce Street gardens.

An opportunity to win a beautiful garden-themed tote bag and purse created by Falconer artisan Brenda Everett will be available at the Nagurney garden on Hunt Road in Lakewood.

The Secret Gardens Tour supports the nature education programs of the Audubon Center & Sanctuary at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. The Nature Center building, housing the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals and interactive exhibits, is open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Sundays 1-4:30 p.m. The Sanctuary’s five and a half miles of trails, Bald Eagle viewing, arboretum, picnic tables, and multiple gardens are open dawn to dusk every day.
