Jamestown Settlement


The Trees will be naked, not the people! Come and learn to ID your native trees. This workshop,“Naked Tree Walk,” will be presented by Dr. Stewart Ware, College of William and Mary professor emeritus of biology. Dr Ware will teach you to analyze the bare twigs of common trees on the Jamestown Settlement grounds. You’ll be amazed!


Workshops are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and start in Jamestown Settlement’s Robert V. Hatcher, Jr., Rotunda.  Registration is available online at or by calling (757) 253-4939.  The $45-per-workshop fee includes lunch.  Members of Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, Inc., Annual Fund gift clubs (donors of $100 or more) receive a discount and can call (757) 253-4139 or email for a code to use in online registration.

This workshop is being given in conjunction with a three-month long exhibition that also features an array of public programs complementing  “Clayton & Catesby: Botanical Virginia,” which continues throughFebruary 28, 2016.  The exhibit explores documentation of native plants by naturalist Mark Catesby and botanist John Clayton in the 18th century and the Flora of Virginia Project in the 21st century.  Among objects on display are 17 period hand-colored engravings created from Catesby’s watercolor paintings of American flora and fauna, on loan from the Garden Club of Virginia, and a 1762 edition of “Flora Virginica,” based on Clayton’s work.
