French drawing room at Hillwood

Earth Day

This Earth Day, meet members of Hillwood’s Environmental Action Team (HEAT) on the Lunar Lawn and learn about environmental stewardship initiatives vital to ensuring Hillwood remains vibrant, healthy, innovative, and current, building a sustainable future for our communities and the world around us. 

Sustainability at Hillwood addresses everything from the reduction of energy usage to employing beneficial insects and native plants in the greenhouses and gardens. Hillwood staff will also share tips on what you can do at home to support the environment. 

Explore the new native garden featuring a bio-retention pond near the Collections and Research Center with Jessica Bonilla, director of horticulture, during thirty-minute tours which depart from the Lunar Lawn at 11:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m. or 1:15 p.m.
