JUNEAU - The Jensen-Olson Arboretum Advisory Board is hosting an "Autumn Garden Party and Wine Tasting" Saturday, Sept. 26, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Glacier Gardens Rainforest Adventures, located at 7600 Glacier Highway. The evening will feature wine selections from three local distributors, gourmet hors d'oeuvres, and a silent auction.
The board hopes to raise funds to renovate the existing garage at the arboretum to create a multipurpose classroom space to be used by community organizations and school groups. The development of classroom space will further the wishes of Caroline Jensen, who donated the arboretum to the city to be used for garden-related education.
Tickets are $30 in advance and $40 at the door. They can be purchased from Hearthside Books, the Juneau Arts and Culture Center, the CBJ office, and Pat Harris (790-4388).
