FREE ADMISSION FOR THE RESIDENTS OF THE IMPACTED TOWNS IN THE MERRIMACK VALLEY EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 21, 2018

Admission to Tower Hill Botanic Garden for residents of Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover is extended to November 21, 2018. CEO Grace Elton said as soon as the severity of the gas explosions in the Merrimack Valley became clear staff began brainstorming ways Tower Hill could help. Gardens and nature play an important role in people’s lives, according to Elton, by providing a respite from the challenges of daily life.
