Take part in a special day of exploring the biodiversity of Schenley Park, meeting local scientists and naturalists, and engaging with community organizations and agencies. Adventures will include guided nature walks, botanical drawing classes, and a variety of nature-themed activities from local organizations.
Schenley Park is a large municipal park created on land donated in 1889 by Mary Schenley (1826-1903), a descendant of early Pittsburgh businessman James O’Hara (1752-1819) and a major philanthropist in her own right. The gardens were a gift to Pittsburgh by steel and real-estate magnate Henry Phipps Jr. (1839-1930).
The day features a series of informative, specialty walks among other activities.
Presented by Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, whose mission is to inspire and educate all with the beauty and importance of plants as well as advance sustainability.
