Wed 03 / 13 / 2024
2:00 PM to 3:00 PM



Please join us for a 4 part series with Deb Schmidle on... 


London’s Iconic Parks and Gardens  


Greater London has more than 3,000 parks and gardens, including eight royal parks, the latter of which are home to a large variety of wildlife. The course covers everything from the iconic Hyde Park and Kew Gardens, to the lesser known, oft-hidden “pocket parks” of London.  In addition to exploring these green sanctuaries, many of which are housed amongst the bustling metropolis, we will also look behind the scenes at the world-renowned and prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. 


LLH member Deb Schmidle’s undergraduate and master’s level research focused on British history in the 16th and 17th centuries, an area in which she remains conversant. Deb has also developed and currently teaches courses on various aspects of London’s history for Lifelong in Ithaca.
