Flowering cherry trees between the domed Legislative Building and the House and Senate office buildings burst open with white flowers in late March, providing some bright color to the otherwise drab weeks marked by rain outdoors and long budget hearings indoors.

Besides cherry trees, there are also magnolias, dogwoods, and more. This brochure shows where the various types of trees are located.

We will spend at least two hours walking the state capitol grounds.

Cloth face coverings are required and must be worn when passing others or when closer than 6' to others in the party.

All group members must carry either alcohol-based  hand sanitizer or biodegradable soap.

This activity will be structured to maintain 6' whenever possible (brief periods closer than 6’ are acceptable).
