Thursday, June 18, 7 pm in the Botanical Center

Experiencing the botanical side of Martha’s Vineyard- Most people assume only the rich and famous vacation on the Vineyard, and they spend their time sunning themselves on the beach and enjoying fine, expensive dining.

That may be true, but there is so much more to this little 100-square-mile island off the coast of Massachusetts. What most of those people don’t know is that more than 35 percent of the island is permanently conserved and it is home to one of the most incredible collections of plants on the east coast: the Polly Hill Arboretum.

Amanda Wilkins will give you a behind-the-scenes tour of the Vineyard in a way only an almost-Islander can.

Free to members and $10 for non-members.
