Overview

This annual tree walk is guided by a biology professor who has been studying the trees at Fairview Cemetery for 17 years. Fairview, a beautifully maintained 105-acre cemetery, opened in 1868. The natural landscape and stone memorials were carefully designed to create a unified composition and is particularly lovely in the autumn. The walk from the meeting location to the cemetery is approximately two miles. The total length of the walk is estimated at six miles. We will stop for lunch in a park on the way to the cemetery tree tour. Please pack a lunch. There will be time to explore Westfield's lively downtown. From Manhattan take a 10:00 am bus from PABT; free parking available near the meeting location; drivers meet at 10:45. Registration required. Transportation details and meeting location will be provided when you register.

I'm a long time AMC walks leader. I love to explore neighborhoods, parks and gardens in New York City and New Jersey. I take special notice of architectural detail, and public art. I look for opportunities to visit galleries, art museums and historic house museums. I welcome you to walk with me so that I can share the many discoveries I've made along the way.
