Wednesday, October 30 | 3 PM – 5 PM
Join Sustainability Matters and the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum for a guided walk and ID primer by Virginia Cooperative Extension’s Forestry Specialist Adam Downing. There’ll be time for Q&A and chat in the Frances Plecker Education Center afterward, followed by a closing art reception for the Sustainability Matters-curated exhibition, ”From Small Acorns…” by Andrea Finch. Light fare and beverages will be provided. Please dress for the weather!
Mirroring the art exhibition’s oak & acorn focus, the walk and ID session will offer particular emphasis on distinguishing different species of oaks, the host of more biodiversity than any other plant genus. Fiber artist Andrea Finch will be joining the walk and sharing her arboreal inspiration.
**Parking will be available in both of the Arboretum lots and along University Blvd between the two Arboretum entrances**
Registration required, meet at the Frances Plecker Education Center
