  • Tuesday, May 2 – Winterthur Museum & Garden, Winterthur, De. 9 a.m.– 5 p.m. Tickets $50 public, $20 BCCC students. Founded by Henry Francis du Pont, Winterthur is the premier museum of American decorative arts, reflecting both early America and the du Pont family’s life here. Its 60-acre naturalistic garden is among the country’s best. Includes guided tour through the home and tram or self-guided tour of the gardens.  Time for lunch on your own at one of the cafés or bring your own lunch for a picnic.
  • Friday, May 5 – Tyler Hall & Gardens, Newtown, Pa. 3:30 – 5 p.m. Tickets $20 public, $10 BCCC students. Experience the old Tyler Estate on Bucks campus with a guided walk of the beautifully restored formal gardens, a visit to the mansion and a demonstration of restoration projects with preservationist Lyle Rosenberger.  All proceeds benefit Tyler Formal Garden.
