Are you looking for a tree to portray for the The Third New York Botanical Garden Triennial, “Out of the Woods”? We have a wonderful opportunity to participate in a guided tour of the unique tree collection of the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, arranged just for pre-registered BAGSC members.
On the morning of Saturday, October 17, Jim Henrich, LA Arboretum Curator of Living Collections will take 20 pre-registered BAGSC members on a one hour, vigorous walk through the Arboretum to see and learn about some of their very special trees. Jim will explain what makes these trees stand out, their history and uses. After the tour you will be free to sketch and take pictures or just enjoy the Arboretum and Peacock café.
So that everyone can hear the discussion, this tour is limited to 20 members. To reserve a spot, email Clara Josephs. Confirmation and additional details will be sent to you by return email.
For more details about the exhibit “Out of the Woods: Celebrating Trees in Public Gardens”, read the Call for Entries in the Exhibitions section of the ASBA website.
