At Fort Tryon Park:
Annual Shearing of the Heather Celebration
April 13, 2019
10:30 am – 12:00 pm
“”The three-acre Heather Garden is the site of our annual rite of spring – the Shearing of the Heather by members of the Northeast Heather Society and Heather Garden staff.
Bring your musical instruments and join in our community parade through the Heather Garden led by NYPD bagpipers. Learn why Fort Tryon Park has the largest heath and heather collection in the northeast, and how to propagate your own heathers with clippings from the shearing.””
