Take a Self-Guided Bird Walk 

Wondering where you can find some of our most beloved feathered friends in our Gardens? From majestic great herons near our Hourglass Lake to chatty mockingbirds in our Meadow Garden, this guide details where and when you’ll be able to find a variety of interesting birds throughout the seasons.

Learn With Us in the Gardens or Online

In the Gardens or online, learn with us here, there, and everywhere. Starting in October, we will once again offer onsite learning experiences here at Longwood, but with a new twist. We’ve moved our in-person programming out of the classroom and into Longwood’s outdoor and cutting-edge spaces, with plenty of room to learn and have fun. Our onsite learning opportunities join our full suite of new, engaging online courses and experiences to help you learn and grow, no matter where you are. With engaging topics from plein air painting in our Meadow Garden to fall floral design from home, register for our classes today. 

Time to Shake Things Up

Put a new twist on your favorite cocktails and mocktails—while celebrating the hard work of bees—during this online offering on September 30 from 6 to 8 pm to celebrate the hard work of bees. Mix in herbal simple syrups, tinctures, and hydrosols crafted especially for this class while learning how the perfect blend of herbal ingredients and honey can sweeten your drinks. The course includes a kit of herbal ingredients and a sample of Caledonia Spirits honey delivered to your home to create the two signature cocktails and one mocktail developed just for this class!
