New Canaan Nature Center Secret Gardens Tour

“Every year we ask ourselves,
how can we possibly out-perform last year?
The gardens never disappoint.
It’s a wonder of nature
worth celebrating every year!”
-Laura Heckman, NCNC Executive Director

“And when your back stops aching
And your hands begin to harden
You will find yourself a partner
In the Glory of the Garden.”
-Rudyard Kipling, 1865-1936, The Glory of the Garden
