Morristown, NJ

Register online at:

View The Frelinghuysen Arboretum’s plant collections through the lens of the Old Testament.  Biologist, agronomist, Bible scholar and most articulate plant geek, Dr. Jon Greenberg, returns to The Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morris Township to once again walk us through more than 5,000 years of history.  Touring the gardens at their mid-summer peak with Jon is a multi-faceted pleasure.  His knowledge of botany and the Talmud combine to make a fascinating walk, even for experienced horticulturists.  Learn something new from a very old source!  Participation is limited, so register early.  Please wear a sun hat and good walking shoes.

The Morris County Park Commission features one of the region’s best park systems in the state of New Jersey.  It currently protects and maintains 18,730 acres at 38 distinct sites plus offers a year-round calendar of events and activities for all to enjoy!
