Naturally Eden: Eden's trees revealed!

Friday, September 28, 2018 - 17:00 to 19:30

Friday 28 September
5pm - afternoon tea, 5.30pm - 7.30pm walk & talk
Gardens of Skirsgill Park, Penrith
Free, but donations welcome.

Don’t miss the chance to explore some of the native and rare trees growing in the garden and arboretum at Skirsgill Park in the company of Edward Mills, woodland manager, chartered forester and conservationist.

Situated on the River Eamont, the gardens include a peaceful river walk as well as an impressive collection of over 400 species of trees. This little-known garden is rarely open to the public and at this time of the year there’s sure to be a stunning display of autumn colour.

As you walk through the gardens, you’ll find out more about Eden’s native trees; how to identify them, their characteristics, and threats to their existence - pests, diseases and climate change.


Access to Skirsgill Park gardens is by kind permission of Mr Anthony Leeming and family.
