We are excited to announce that we will continue our Adult Education series at the Arboretum and Gardens at Tanglewood Park. During July and August 2021, we will return to in-person classes. Please read on for details, as some of them have changed.

In-person programs with limited capacity will be held at Walnut Hall at Tanglewood Park: 4061 Clemmons Rd, Clemmons, NC 27012. Registration will not be taken on the day of the progarm and we will not allow walk-ins to attend. Registration opens 2 weeks prior to each program date on our Eventbrite page. All registrants are asked to follow current COVID-19 policies at the time of each class.

The dates and topics are as follows:
