Monday, September 24 – Wednesday, September 26 – Landscapes of Nantucket


Join the Polly Hill Arboretum for this visit to our island neighbor to explore the Nantucket landscape.  While Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket share similar ecosystems, we will also discover some diffferences in the landscapes.  With the help of colleagues at the Nantucket Land Council, we will visit a few conservation properties and learn about land preservation on Nantucket. Downtown Nantucket is also home to some majestic street trees, including several American elms.  The trip will include a walking tour with Nantucket’s tree warden, to learn about the legacy of these historic trees.  Two private garden visits, arranged by the Nantucket Garden Club, are also included in the tour.  The tour price includes round trip airfare from Martha’s Vineyard to Nantucket via Cape Air, two nights at the Jared Coffin House, all ground transportation on Nantucket, and a $100 tax deductible contribution to the Polly Hill Arboretum.  $694 per person for queen sized bed (based on double occupancy), $660 per person for full sized bed (based on double occupancy), and $510 per person for room with one twin bed.  Tour is limited to 18 people, so sign up early by calling 508-693-9426, visiting www.pollyhillarboretum.org, or emailing karin@pollyhillarboretum.org.
