Annual Shearing of the Heather Celebration at Fort Tryon Park, April 13

Date: April 13, 2019

Time: 10:30 am

The three-acre Heather Garden is the site of our annual rite of spring – the Shearing of the Heather by members of the Northeast Heather Society and Heather Garden staff. 

Bring your musical instruments and join in our community parade through the Heather Garden led by NYPD bagpipers. Learn why Fort Tryon Park has the largest heath and heather collection in the northeast, and how to propagate your own heathers with clippings from the shearing. Make flower-themed crafts and get your face painted while enjoying the garden’s spring beauty and panoramic views of the Hudson River and Palisades!
