Saturday, February 12, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm – Dwarf Conifer and Juniper Collection via Snowshoes

Join Jen Kettell on Saturday, February 12, from 10:30 – 12:30 for a tromp through the dwarf conifer and juniper collections on snowshoes. She will help you identify common conifers, share the stories behind the plants, impart the history of the two collections, and describe the microclimate in this part of the Arnold Arboretum.

Bring your own snowshoes, a travel mug for hot cocoa after the hike, and dress warmly! This tour is not suitable for cross-country skis. Plan for a walking tour in the event that there is no snow. Sunglasses are recommended.

Space is limited. (Note: this description updates the description printed in Silva.) $20 Arboretum members, $24 nonmembers. For more information email, or call 617-384-5277.  Photo by Steve Greaves.
