Join Scott Arboretum staff and local gardening enthusiasts as they share travel experiences abroad! In addition to learning about spectacular gardens, plants, and landscapes, you’ll get a taste of the art, cuisine, architecture, and customs of lands near and far. It’s a perfect wintertime escape!
Join Tony Aiello, Director of Horticulture and Curator at the Morris Arboretum, as he takes on a tour of central Japan, where he participated in plant exploration trips in the fall of 2018 and 2019. Tony will highlight the areas of Honshu that he and his colleagues visited and collected a diversity of trees and shrubs. He will also share his experiences in visiting Japanese cultural sites. Plus, find out what was holy and what was devilish during his travels.
