Every year, Manitoga dedicates special landscape days for volunteers to come together to help maintain Manitoga as a resource and inspiration for professionals and the public. The next landscape day takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. Lunch will be provided.

Members of Manitoga’s Woodland Landscape Council and staff provide special training for teams working on major projects to ready the site for the season and to maintain Russel Wright’s unique design vision. Landscape volunteers receive hands-on training and mini-workshops in gardening with native plants, invasive species identification and removal, tree care and other woodland landscape issues.

Manitoga Inc. is the non-profit organization that assumes stewardship of the site, collections, and programs. To better reflect its mission, the name Manitoga/The Russel Wright Design Center was adopted. Please contact the Manitoga office for more information. Call 845-424-3812, or email [email protected].
