The Westlake Garden Club (WGC) is sponsoring a bus tour to Schedel Arboretum & Gardens in Elmore, Ohio, on Wednesday, June 25. We will enjoy a docent‑led tour of the gardens, with more than 15,000 annuals, flowering trees, perennials, shrubs and many plant species normally not found in our region.

Following a catered lunch in the Welcome Center overlooking the lower level gardens, we will tour the Schedel Manor House, built in 1882 and furnished with a collection of antiques, custom furniture and rare artworks. On our return trip, we will stop at Bench's Greenhouse & Nursery to browse its selection of hanging baskets, annuals, perennials, over 2,000 roses and a Farm Market, with Bench’s produce from its 650-acre farm. 

This tour has something for everyone. Don’t miss out – reserve your seat now!

Our tour bus will depart West Bay Plaza, at the northwest corner of Detroit and Crocker roads, at 8:00 a.m. sharp, rain or shine; returning approximately 4:30 p.m. The all‑inclusive cost for WGC members is $48 and for non‑members $58. If you would prefer not to walk the gardens, merely add $4 to reserve a seat on a large golf cart.  

For further information, please contact Shirley Lutts at 440‑871‑8057 or Ruth Bertrand at 440‑899‑1565. We look forward to having you join us.
