In years without a global pandemic, the Watnong Chapter meets five times each year at the Haggerty Education Center of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Morristown, New Jersey 07960. Meetings are free and open to the public. We also sponsor an Annual Plant Sale at The Leonard J. Buck Garden in Far Hills, New Jersey, garden visits, and a summer picnic.
As of May 2021, it remains uncertain when the Haggerty Education Center will reopen. We have moved our meetings to an on-line Zoom platform, and our lectures for September, October, and November will take place virtually. All active members will be sent the link a few days before the scheduled meeting.
Our summer 2021 activities are exclusively for current members of the Watnong chapter:
