High Line Horticulture Tours Were Hot, Hot, Hot

Despite the heat wave this weekend, 80 intrepid High Line supporters took part in our first ever High Line horticulture tours on Saturday. Alex Feleppa, director of horticulture for the Horticultural Society of New York, took visitors on a journey through the rail yards section of the Line (30th-34th Streets), the only part of the Line not yet under construction. Alex highlighted native and invasive species, plants' adaptation to tough conditions like those on the High Line, and the way seeds spread and germinate.

These tours were part of our regular spring/summer programming calendar. To hear about upcoming programs, join our mailing list, or better yet, become a member of Friends of the High Line. Members get advance notice of programming events.
