Barking Up the Right Tree: A Tour of Bark Diversity at the Arboretum

January 22, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

What is there to see at the Arboretum after all of the leaves have fallen and before spring flowers start to bloom? Bark! Shaggy bark, mottled bark, striped bark: the Arboretum has it all. Join Horticulturist Rachel Lawlor to see some beautiful bark highlights, learn how to identify some trees by their bark alone, and learn why exactly that bark looks the way it does.

This tour will involve walking over grassy slopes, paved roads, mulch paths, and quite possibly some snow. We will be outside the whole time so dress for the weather! The tour begins on Bussey Street near the Dana Greenhouses.
