The annual Secret Gardens Tour benefiting the New Canaan Nature Center will take place Friday, June 4.

The popular tour is a fund-raiser for the New Canaan Nature Center and is an opportunity for homeowners, gardeners of all levels and anyone who appreciates the beauty of the outdoors to be inspired by several outstanding garden settings. The self-guided tour takes place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., allowing attendees to visit the gardens at their own pace and on their own schedule.

New Canaan Nature Center welcomes Elise Landscapes & Nursery as the lead sponsor of the tour for the second year in a row.

The Bank of New Canaan and Kitchens By Deane are providing support for the tour. Kitchens By Deane is sponsoring the luncheon this year, which will feature a gourmet meal from New Canaan's Fabulous Feasts packed in a reusable, eco-friendly tote bag. Attendees can enjoy their lunch at the New Canaan Nature Center or take it with them to eat at their convenience.

Tour tickets are $75 including lunch or $50 for the tour only. Tour tickets will be $60 on the day of the tour.

Tickets can be purchased at the New Canaan Nature Center, by calling 203-966-9577 ext. 50, or online at www.NewCanaanNature.org starting May 1.
