Heritage Tree Tour: Summer Splendor

June 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


 Old trees, big trees, rare trees– we have them all! Join Curator and Plant Recorder Mary Tipping for a summer evening tour of the most valuable trees in our collections. Each Heritage Tree has been qualified as such due to the combination of its age, health, historical and/or cultural significance, and relative rarity in both the world and locally. This qualification helps us communicate their importance and preserve these trees into the future.
