11:00 AM at Seattle Arboretum-Graham Visitor Center
Tony Allison, Program Assistant for Education at the Washington Park Arboretum, will lead a walk in the Arboretum on Sunday, November 14, from 11 am to 12:30 pm. We will begin at the Graham Visitors Center and traverse the Crab Apple Meadow, the world-class Mountain Ash collection, and several other collections on our way to the Pacific Connections exhibit. Pacific Connections, which opened in 2008, features plants from five areas of the Pacific Rim: Australia, New Zealand, China, Chile, and the US Northwest. Then we will return via several other collections, including Ashes, Rhododendrons, and the Pinetum (an area full of native and exotic conifers). We will talk about the history and lay-out of the Arboretum, and about the Arboretum as a tool for educating both children and adults, as we meander through this treasure of Seattle. We go rain or shine! Bring water and a snack, and appropriate footwear and clothes
