"A Masterpiece for Modern Times”
Speaker/Guide: Betsy Burgeson, Supervisor of Landscapes and Gardens, Chautauqua Institution
Location: Smith Wilkes Hall

Originally created by Ellen Biddle Shipman, the grand gardens of Miller Cottage showcased myriad exotics and hard-to-grow varieties. Chautauqua’s Supervisor of Gardens and Landscapes takes us through her journey of re-creating the gardens using less persnickety plants and natives to achieve the desired effect. Be amazed by the effort to transport this garden thru time - the results speak for themselves!

 


Betsy Burgeson earned a Bachelor of Science in earth science and biology education and a master’s in science secondary education at Fredonia State University. She then taught biology for seven years at Panama Central in southern Chautauqua County. Betsy, a “third-generation gardener,” became the Supervisor of Gardens and Landscapes at Chautauqua Institution in January 2015 and also holds the cherished role of BTG Patron Saint!

MONARCH MOMENTS AND MORE Bring your lunch and a healthy appetite for learning on Mondays 12:15pm in Smith Wilkes Hall. Expanding beyond solely discussing Monarchs, settle in for a lecture about a topic related to the natural world with a wide range of interesting speakers. 

BUTTERFLIES AND BLOOMS program celebrates you - the gardeners in our audience who have adopted eco-friendly practices and have certified their gardens as monarch waystations with Monarch Watch. Prior to each Monarch Moments & More presentation, home owners will place a pin on their CHQ garden!
