Curator, Mary Tipping will elaborate on the Arboretum's favorite plants and why you’ll want to add them to your garden.

You'll also get a sneak peek at many of the great plants that will be available to purchase at Scott's Fall Sale, September 16 & 17.

Don't miss this chance to learn from those who care for one of the region’s most intimate, authentic, and accessible horticultural experiences.

The Outdoor Amphitheater (pictured left) hosts Swarthmore College's commencement ceremonies and consists of 8 tiers, grassed and edged in stone.
