The Garden Conservancy's Open Days Program invites the public to visit America's very best, rarely seen, private gardens. The July 28 tour includes a visit to three gardens, including the extensive gardens and natural areas of Mettawa Manor, owned by Bill Kurtis and Donna LaPietra. We'll also stop the Gardens at Elm Tree and The Cottage, both in Lake Forest. Transportation is by van, and admissions to the gardens are included. Please bring money for lunch, and be prepared to walk long distances on lawns, garden paths and woodchip trails.

For adults ages 18 and up.

Fee per person: $39 Res / $49 Non-res.

Pre-registration required. Call the Emily Oaks office at (847) 674-1500, ext. 2500 for more information.
