“Awareness through Education…
…Responsibility through Involvement”
Due to the efforts of numerous volunteers, BCAHS fundraising efforts, especially the Annual Plant Sale and Granny’s Attic, have been very successful. At the October meeting, BCAHS members presented Nelson Sterner, Director of Bayard Cutting Arboretum, a $10,000 donation for the Arboretum.

BCAHS offers numerous its members education programs, lectures, demonstrations and networking opportunities.

Hundreds of visitors come to the Arboretum for the Annual Plant Sale that features attractive and unusual perennials and specialty plants.
