Kate Sessions Birthday Celebration
Saturday Nov. 10
Join in celebrating the birthday of one of San Diego's first tree-huggers and the person most responsible for turning Balboa Park into an urban oasis. This year Kate Sessions would be 155 years old and that calls for a party! Join us at the Marston House on Saturday, November 10, 11am-2pm to enjoy the festivities:
Three organizations with strong ties to Kate Sessions and Balboa Park have joined together to create a fun-filled day: Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO),the San Diego Floral Association and Friends of Balboa Park.
When - Saturday, November 10 · 11am - 2pm
Where - Marston House & Gardens, 3525 7th Ave.
Parking - Free parking along Balboa Drive, Sixth Avenue, Upas and Thorn Streets
We attended this event last year and can let you know that even with the spotty rain conditions, it was well worth it. Katherine Olivia "Kate" Sessions was an American botanist, horticulturalist, and landscape architect known as the "Mother of Balboa Park."
