- Plant ID Walk: Summer Standouts | 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The best way to learn about new plants is to see them firsthand in the landscape. On each Saturday walk, landscape architecture instructor and plantsman Joshua Beblo will introduce you to dozens of plants in the landscape. Walks will focus on different themes, and any plants you pass are fair game for identification and discussion. Tune in to the wonderful world of plants all around you.
