Ambler in Bloom is the Ambler Arboretum’s Annual Garden Party Fundraiser. This year, the Arboretum will be celebrating on Saturday, September 10, 2022, from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. with a "There's no place like Ambler!" theme.

On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, an EF2 tornado, spawned by the remnants of hurricane Ida, had a direct impact on the Ambler Campus and Arboretum. While ruby slippers may come to mind when thinking about the Wizard of Oz, our theme strives to acknowledge the tornado and the significant damage it caused and the journey of reimagining and rebuilding our spaces. We are still reeling from the losses of our tree canopy, our horticultural displays, and our botanical collections. All event proceeds will go toward Arboretum rebuilding and replanting.

Held in the "Emerald City" of the Colibraro Conifer Garden we will be highlighting the journey of finding heart, courage and knowledge as we worked our way through this ordeal just as the Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow found theirs as they journeyed along the yellow brick road.

Explore the gardens, enjoy a signature cocktail, eat some delicious hors d'oeuvres, participate in our raffle, listen to live music and share our stories.

We welcome all to register for and attend the event.
