Milwaukee County Aging & Disabilities Services is sponsoring free guided tours of Boerner Botanical Gardens this summer for older adults (60+). Participants have the opportunity to view Milwaukee County’s “Living Museum” with a 90-minute educational, docent-guided tour. The setting for the Gardens is reminiscent of an English country manor with glacial fieldstone walls and historic, handcrafted limestone statuary. Tours include the signature gardens, plant collections and wetland area. Participants will have the opportunity at the end of the guided tour to visit the gift shop. SIGN UP FOR A TOUR To reserve your spot contact Vincenza Doyne at (414) 289-5818 or [email protected]
