2012 NGC Convention Sunday, May 20

Buffalo, NY, located at the juncture of Lake Erie and the Niagara River, is an excellent location for our Tri-Refresher. It is the premier destination for those interested in history, architecture, art, parks and gardens and has all the elements for those who are Consultants in the Environmental Studies, Garden Study and/or Landscape Design Schools. We will board the bus at 8:00AM and depart The Adam’s Mark Hotel for The Erie Basin Marina Test Gardens. It is here that the newest varieties of specialty annuals and perennials from around the world are trialed. Then, it is on to Tifft Nature Preserve, a 264 acre nature refuge dedicated to conservation and environmental education. Our next stop will be the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens composed of eleven interconnected greenhouses. This striking 1901 conservatory is situated in the Olmsted designed South Park Arboretum. Following Lunch we travel to Delaware Park, another Frederick Law Olmsted Park, to view the Rose Gardens and the Japanese Gardens. The Buffalo Zoo Rain Forest exhibit is next on the itinerary. The Rain Forest is a recent addition to the third oldest zoo in the USA. This indoor exhibit features a new roof technology used for the first time in a USA zoo. The roof technology will provide full spectrum sunlight needed for survival of plant and animal life. As we leave for Forest Lawn Cemetery our route will take us to the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin Martin House. The bus will pause while we view the newly restored Gardens and landscaping that compliment Wright’s Prairie style design. As our bus approaches Forest Lawn Cemetery we will be greeted by the 3500 trees, representing 200 different species, and the 240 species of birds and other wildlife. The cemetery is home to the Frank Lloyd Wright Blue Sky Mausoleum, the only place in the world where you can be permanently interred in a Wright designed structure. The bus is scheduled to return to the Hotel by 5:00PM.
