Parts of the 460-acre Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, near Oakdale, will open to the public for “Peek and Preview” tours beginning Sept. 13.

Renovation of a 142-year-old barn that will become the Bayer Welcome Center is set to begin July 25 and should be finished in February 2013. The opening of the Woodland and Wildflowers trail is set for next summer.

The welcome center will be able to host events for 200 to 250 people and reservations will be taken beginning in November.

Work on the garden is a 24-year effort to create a home for regional vegetation and wildlife. It ultimately will have 18 garden and five woodland settings.

The $30 million project will probably take 25 to 30 years to complete, says Kittty Vagley, director of development for the garden.

Details: 412-444-4464 or www.pittsburghbotanicgarden.org.
