WHEN: Sunday, May 28, 9:30 a.m. This is a past event.

Please note: Our registration policy has changed. Registration is for one individual only. Each attendee must be registered separately.

Reminder: Given the challenges of COVID-19, masks are optional but all attendees are asked to try to maintain physical distance with other attendees, except members of the same household, or wear a mask if that is not possible.

WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm, east of the Prince of Wales roundabout.

WHAT: In the spring, trees and shrubs may be at their most unfamiliar to nature lovers.  Leaves are unfolding and taking on different colours and textures from the more familiar textbook photos.  Springtime is when attractive visual effects change day to day and then are not seen again until the following year.  Also, no detailed books or guides on the subject exist, so it may be difficult to recognize species familiar at other times of year.  This tour will explore some transient features of late spring botany, with an emphasis on details differing between types of trees, and tips for enjoying the season of rebirth.

Attendance is limited to 40 to enable physical distancing.

Tour leader: Owen Clarkin

COST: Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted during the tour.
