A Summertime Past: Horticulture Tour

A Summertime Past: Horticulture Tour through Wildwood Valley Gardens in Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum

Saturday, June 8, 2024, 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Join one of Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum horticulturalists for a walking tour through Wildwood Valley Gardens. There are three guided tours available, so choose the time that works best for you. When you are not participating in a guided tour, feel free to explore the Cemetery and Arboretum on your own! Utilize our free “Historic Tour Line” map to explore 3.7 miles of our 14 miles of roadway at your own pace.

Bellefontaine’s total of 314 acres is Missouri’s only ArbNet Accredited Level III Arboretum—one of only 44 in the world! Bellefontaine’s grounds are home to a vast array of trees and shrubs of local, regional, and international origins providing a changing landscape every season. Over 9,000 trees and shrubs can be found throughout the property represent over 525 distinct species, selections, and varieties. While observing the beautiful flowers and trees, you may also see wildlife! The Arboretum remains a tranquil haven for local wildlife, including red fox, raccoons, red-tailed hawks, wild turkeys, wood ducks and ducklings, bees and many migratory birds. This event is wonderful for those who enjoy the outdoors, nature, animals, and walking.

Upon entering historic Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum at 4947 W. Florissant, follow directional signage to the right into Wildwood Valley Gardens. Staff will be available to meet and direct attendees through our Garden and into some of the Cemetery’s additional Horticultural Landscapes.
