Members-Only Walking Tour at West Laurel Hill on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 10:00 am
Members-Only programs are exclusive to active members of the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries. As a benefit of your membership donation, supporters are invited to get a view of both Laurel Hill Cemetery and West Laurel Hill Cemetery that no ordinary visitor will experience with special programs, lectures and tours.
Walk through the garden of flowers in stone at West Laurel Hill and learn how to read a different layer of the cemetery: plant symbolism. From wreaths of laurel to lilies and ivy, visit exquisite examples of perpetually blooming and forever green stonework.
This walking tour will include a complimentary cemetery plant as a gift for all registered members.
The tour is free to active members only and will take place on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 10:00 am, departing from West Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Conservatory at 215 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Free parking is located in the lot at the Conservatory.
