Morris Arboretum Interns visit the High Line in New York City

Yesterday the interns went on a field trip to the High Line in New York City. The High Line is a New York City park built on an elevated 1930s freight rail structure on Manhattan’s West Side. Check out their website here: They met with Patrick Cullina, the Vice President of Horticulture and Park Operations. They had a great tour of the plants, history and challenges of the park.

Here are a few pictures from the visit:
