Winter has ended and botanical life renews itself come April. The magnificent and diverse forest of trees at Louisville’s beloved Cave Hill Cemetery awaits your visit.  They’re showing their finest and freshest spring foliage and blossoms for our admiration. The Cemetery’s horticulturist and arborist lead you through the historic avenues among the solemn graves on an open-air wagon as they share the legacy and unique characteristics of many of our region’s most lauded trees. Dress for the weather and comfort on the straw-bale touring wagon.

Instructors:  Sarah Schaffner and Roger Martin




Refund Policy

Although we are unable to refund registration fees in the case of cancellation by the purchaser, the paid registration can be transferred to another student. In this case, please notify Allison Whitehouse at awhitehouse@waterfrontgardens.org or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only. Beargrass Canoe Tours have a different policy with no refunds under any circumstance because of river and weather volatility.

Emergency Cancellation

In the event of an emergency cancellation, the Gardens will contact registered students with a cancellation notice (always provide/maintain a current email address and phone number so that we may notify you of an emergency or cancellation). The Gardens will attempt to reschedule classes cancelled due to an emergency event if possible.
