Embrace the harvest season by joining Brucemore’s gardeners on Saturday, October 15 at 10:30 a.m. for the Autumn Landscape Hike.  Set amid the subtle and spectacular dressings of the 26-acre autumnal landscape, this 90-minute walk will blend a discussion of current preservation issues, the importance of public use, and the seasonal chores that preserve the historic grounds. Participants will see how planting choices with sensitivity to native species and seasonal display affect the overarching impact of a landscape design. The colors of the season – from dusky plum to rusty barn red – will naturally highlight the “outdoor rooms” of the original landscape design by O.C. Simonds. Participants will have the opportunity to seek advice about their own gardens and landscapes from Brucemore Gardeners Deb Engmark and David Morton or ask questions ranging from the cultural needs of particular plants to landscape design issues past and present.

Admission is $10.00 per person and $7.00 per Brucemore member. Space is limited. Advance ticket purchase required. Please call (319) 362-7375 or stop by the Brucemore Store to purchase tickets. For more information, visit

Brucemore, Iowa’s only National Trust Historic Site, is located at 2160 Linden Drive SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
