The Rockefeller family, a multi-generational American dynasty renowned for its extraordinary philanthropy and land preservation stewardship, created magnificent gardens now open to the public: Kykuit, a former Rockefeller country retreat and gardens, in the Hudson Valley and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden in Seal Harbor Maine.

The family’s indelible mark on American horticulture is the backdrop for the book The Rockefeller Family Gardens: An American Legacy; with photography by, Larry Lederman, essays by Todd Forrest, vice president of horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden, and Cynthia Bronson Altman, curator of the collections at Kykuit. Please join us for an insightful panel discussion about the horticultural and landscape mastery of the Rockefeller family gardens moderated by Louis Bauer, Director of Horticulture at Wave Hill.

Copies of The Rockefeller Family Gardens: An American Legacy will be available for purchase after the lecture.

This is event is co-sponsored by Wave Hill. Free admission is available for Wave Hill members.
