Invasive Species Sculptures (2019)

  • Date: October 5, 2019
  • Time: 9:00am - 11:00am

Phragmites grows in in dense stands in our meadow in spite of ongoing efforts to control it, sometimes reaching 15 feet in height. We’ll discuss the intersection of botany and globalization at Bartram’s Garden and weave a giant Phragmites sculpture together, working with materials available in the garden. Join us early for discussion and instruction, or come late to add on to what others have already begun!


Large portions of our 50+ acre botanical garden can be explored via wheelchair, though some of our paths are currently awaiting repairs and should be used at your own discretion. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out ahead of the event.
