Join the Delaware Association for Environmental Education for an evening of socializing and an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the Mt. Cuba Center in Hockessin, Delaware.
Mt. Cuba Center is a botanical garden that inspires an appreciation for the beauty and value of native plants and a desire to protect the habitats that sustain them. Over the past 70 years the gardens at Mt. Cuba Center have been transformed from fallow cornfields into thriving ecologically functional landscapes, thanks to the vision of Mr. and Mrs. Lammot du Pont Copeland. Now the gardens at Mt. Cuba Center represent a variety of natural settings that support local habitats, from highland forests and meadows to lowland ponds. With its support of bio-diverse communities, Mt. Cuba Center serves as a model for environmentally beneficial gardening. Mt. Cuba Center also conducts original research on native plants in the Trial Garden and in over 500 acres of natural lands and offers classes on site and online, lectures, and a new ecological gardening certificate to promote a deeper understanding of native plants and the impact of conservation.
