CANCELLED – Trees at Joseph Bonaparte’s Point Breeze

May 16, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Our tree walk has been cancelled.  We hope to have an opportunity to reschedule sometime in the fall.  Thanks for you interest.


Daniel Druckenbrod, Associate Professor, Department of Geological, Environmental & Marine Sciences, Rider University, will be our guide as we visit Point Breeze, home of Joseph Bonaparte from 1816 to 1832. Bonaparte landscaped his property after the French tradition, creating “one of the most significant, yet little known, garden parks in American landscape history.” (C.A. Webster, J. Garden History, 2012. The landscaping components prominently featured trees, some of which may remain to this day. Based on his research at Monticello, Mount Vernon, and other historical properties, Dr. Druckenbrod will consider how trees fit into this French-inspired historical landscape and the potential for interpreting this landscape today.
