“Awareness Through Education…..
…Responsibility Through Involvement”
The BCAHS society has been in existence since 1974. Our members are of varied levels of experience, always interested, helpful and eager to share their ideas as well as listen to yours. Our monthly meetings are a lively time to discover and discuss our personal horticultural interests. Presently we have over 200 members.
Our monthly meetings include informative guest speakers on a variety of topics that have to do with the natural world. The meetings take place on the second Wednesday of each month (September through June) at 6:30 PM. We meet in the historic Carriage House on the grounds of the Arboretum.
We have a vibrant and extensive program of over 30 educational activities that include garden visits, self drive tours around Long Island, bus tours, horticultural classes and craft workshops that occur on various days throughout the year. Our members as well as professionals in the field teach these classes.
We also have special events throughout the year. There are guided seasonal walks through the Arboretum as well as celebratory parties to mark the beginning of summer and winter.
