About the event
As is our tradition, around the Summer Solstice, LINLA Professionals gather at a beautiful garden for a behind the scenes tour & al fresco dinner with colleagues and industry friends.
This year we are happy to be back at Hofstra as we tour the beautiful grounds with the new Director of Grounds and Landscapes, Michael Runkel. We will learn about the new projects and policies as they transition to a more sustainable campus, and the challenges of managing one of the top rated Campus Arboretums - while also managing pests and expectations.
- CNLP Credits pending
- The light Dinner and beverages will be served al fresco on the lawn - Please bring your own Lawn Chair or Blanket.
Voted #16 of the The 50 Most Beautiful College Arboretums
Located in Hempstead, New York, Hofstra University is home to a stunning, 240-acre campus that has been designated as an arboretum. There are more than 12,000 evergreen and deciduous trees, representing 625 species and varieties, including both native and exotic trees. In addition to a plethora of magnificent trees, the Hofstra Arboretum is home to a Model Bird Sanctuary and Environmental Studies Center. The entire campus is a bird sanctuary, but this designated two-acre sanctuary has served as an educational prototype for the state of New York. In addition to being a bird sanctuary and arboretum, the campus is also an exhibition space to one of the largest private collections of public art in the New York metropolitan region, showcasing more than 70 works of sculpture including those by major 20th century artists such as Seymour Lipton, Paul Manship, Henry Moore, and Tony Rosenthal.
