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
