Autumn Foliage at the Dominion Arboretum

WHEN: Sunday, October 15, 9:30 a.m. Please note: Our registration policy has changed. Registration is for one individual only. Each attendee must be registered separately. The tour will take place RAIN OR SHINE.

WHERE: Meet at Building 72 in the Dominion Arboretum (east of the roundabout at Prince of Wales and the NCC Driveway)

WHAT: This tour will showcase the colourful mid-October autumn environment of the Dominion Arboretum. Traditional favourites such as Sugar Maple and Red Maple will be visited, as will some less well-known stars of the fall season such as Black Maple, White Oak, Sweet Gum and Tupelo. While the tour leader will aim to be an educational ambassador for the trees, it is hoped that we catch the peak colourful foliage season and, in effect, that the trees end up beautifully speaking for themselves.

Tour leader: Owen Clarkin

Attendance is limited to 40 people. If spaces fill up, you may ask to have your name added to a waiting list by sending us an email.
