Saturday, March 7, 2020
10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Green Spring Gardens


The witch hazel is blooming at Green Spring Gardens, adding some color to the tree canopy there that has a surprisingly rich variety of species. We will see natives such as ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius) with its colorful exfoliating bark; the evergreen native Eastern red cedar (Juniperus virginiana); redbuds (Cercis Canadensis) already on the cusp of bud break; tulip trees (Liriodendron tulipifera) with their distinctive large buds, and much more. The walk will not be strenuous, but we will be able to identify a nice range of species, making this a good walk for beginners—but all are welcome.

Leading the walk will be Toni Woods. Toni works as an Urban Forester in Fairfax County and is a certified arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture since 2012.
