Tour the Folly Arboretum in Springs

Thu, 06/20/2024 - 13:52

The East Hampton Trails Preservation Society has organized a moderate hike of slightly more than two miles on Wednesday that will include a private tour of the Folly Tree Arboretum in Springs.

Founded in 2013 by Tucker Marder as a cultural archive of trees, the arboretum is dedicated to ecological storytelling and promoting an environmental ethic through art and science. Mr. Marder will lead the tour on Wednesday.

Participants have been asked to meet at 9:30 a.m. on Longwoods Lane, just off Three Mile Harbor Road, for a walk of slightly more than a mile to the site. Sensible shoes, water, and tick protection have been recommended.
