Fall Foliage Tour


The Pocantico Center Gardens and Grounds

Tickets: $30 (+$2.50 ticketing fee)

The Pocantico Center’s vast campus is home to thousands of trees, including both indigenous and imported species. Towering beauties like beechnut, cherry, Japanese maple, and wisteria embellish the visual landscape, capture carbon, protect against erosion, and provide habitats for local wildlife.

As the leaves begin to change and brilliant fall colors emerge, guests are invited to wander the grounds with arborist Peter Strom, who will share insights about the histories, life cycles, and care of the estate’s robust tree life.

The rain date for this event is Tuesday, October 10.
