Holiday Balsam Wreaths

Adirondack Balsam Wreaths
A North Country Tradition

Last orders accepted on November 30, 2016.

Each year TAUNY works with naturalist and North Country Heritage Award recipient Jane Desotelle
to offer balsam wreaths for the holidays. This annual fundraiser for TAUNY highlights a regional traditional artist who makes her living from the garden and woods around her Adirondack home.

All wreaths are made to order with generous quantities of balsam fir and natural decorations. Adirondack balsam can’t be beat for fragrance and lasting power; the wreaths Jane makes remain on display until spring flowers bloom.
