Audubon Announces Secret Gardens Locations

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:

New Features on Audubon’s Secret Gardens Tour

New Features on Audubon’s Secret Gardens Tour

Jamestown, NY – You’ll be inspired by gardens large and small, traditional and contemporary, at the Jamestown (NY) Audubon Center & Sanctuary’s 11th Secret Gardens Tour. 

The Saturday, July 12, event boasts eight gardens, from pocket size to palatial, in Jamestown, Lakewood, and Celoron, New York. One of these hidden treasures has been so popular that this is its fourth time on the circuit. And imagine a fallen barn turned into a sunken garden!

As if eight stunning gardens weren’t enough, Audubon has added some new features this year.

The event will include a drawing for a beautiful hand-crafted tote bag and matching purse with a garden theme. Donated by Jamestowner Mary Anne Harp, often credited with the original idea for Secret Gardens, the ensemble was hand-crafted by local artisan Brenda Everett. The tote bag will be on display in the Nature Center building at Audubon prior to the tour.
