UW Botanic Gardens: Wednesday Walks with John Wott

A short walk from the Graham Visitors Center via the Hillside Trail, the Joseph A. Witt Winter Garden features a central lawn encircled by tall cedars and firs and a tremendous assortment of smaller trees, shrubs and perennials. Plants included in the winter garden offer us striking color, exceptional fragrance, and unusual forms and textures. This garden is a real treat from late November through the end of March, when much of the rest of the park is quiet and subdued.

Join John Wott, Professor Emeritus and former Arboretum Director, for a new series of walking tours at the UW Botanic Gardens’ Washington Park Arboretum. Dr. Wott will discuss the history of the Arboretum, overall design, and changes over time. Throughout the year, each walk will feature plants that offer us seasonal highlights. These walks take routes that are well-suited for visitors with limited mobility. For more information click here.

Cost: $15; $20 after  February 5.
