Garden Conservancy’s Open Day’s Program

Open Days LINK to Pennsylvania Gardens
Open Days LINK to Pennsylvania Gardens

Readers may enjoy knowing about a special program called the OPEN DAYS program that allows the best private gardens in the nation to be open to the public on specified days in the year.

Pennsylvania has many outstanding gardens that are not typically open to the public. Here’s a link (opens in new window) to the ones that are open this year!

A $5 admission fee at each garden supports the expansion of the Open Days Program about the country and promotes awareness of the Garden Conservancy’s work in preserving such gardens.

See the link for the gardens that are open in Pennsylvania. You can follow other links to other states’ gardens if you wish.
