McIntire Botanical Garden Walk

Since the first tree identification walk on June 17 at the future site of the McIntire Botanical Garden proved so popular, we scheduled a second walk on August 5 for 27 more local residents to visit the trails there.   Following the program outlined by Nancy Weiss in the first walk, Tree Stewards Tom Wild and Donna Vinal led this walk and helped the group identify over 30 native Virginia trees, including ash, willow, maple, locust, and sycamore.  Helen Flamini, founder and former president of the McIntire Botanical Garden, discussed the plans for the garden.   More walks at McIntire, other city parks, and interesting tree sites across the area are planned. These walks will be listed on our website under “Take a Class or a Tree Walk.”
