Charitable Events: We also open the garden to give back to the Central New York Community by providing a venue for Baltimore Woods Nature Center, the CNY Land Trust, and several other local not-for-profits to host their own annual fundraisers at Sycamore Hill Gardens. 100% of admission fees go directly to these groups, we charge them no fees for their use of the gardens. So, when you visit Sycamore Hill Gardens for an event, you will be directly helping these organizations by sharing the enjoyment of time spent outdoors with friends and family.
