Our special attraction is the historic Belle Isle sawmill. Built in the late 1800’s, sawmill was used until the 1980’s. The Arboriculture Society of Michigan Foundation is starting the process of restoring the mill. The Belle Isle Aquarium and Bell Isle Nature Center will be open. The Belle Isle Conservatory, undergoing extensive repairs, may not be available.
The Luncheon, at the Detroit Yacht Club, will feature “Welcome Spring” salad, rolls/butter, and lemonade layer cake.
Retail therapy includes the opportunity to purchase botanically-inspired attire, courtesy of the Peacock Room. A few specially commissioned Daffodil Day tiles are available by advance purchase for $50.
Daffodils4Detroit is sponsored by the Michigan Division of the WNF&GA. Chairperson Robin Heller, Grosse Pointe Farm & Garden Club, leads the planning committee. Contact Robin if you want to become more involved.
Special Note from Robin Heller: Underwriting donations will be a key to our continued success. Costs of planting have risen substantially in 2018. The three contribution levels are: Trumpeter ($500-$999), Golden Long ($1000-$4,999) and Double Golden ($5,000 plus). Please consider those levels for yourself, for your branch, for businesses you patronize, or for a shared gift from members of your family or a group of friends. Thank you for your continued support.
