Signs of Spring Tour

Event Location: 
U.S. Botanic Garden
National Garden - May 2012

This event has already occurred — Join the U.S. Botanic Garden's Emily Porter to explore the first signs of spring in the National Garden. During this outdoor tour, you will learn to identify a variety of common native plants and discover the important clues that plants reveal about the life cycles of their surroundings. Your observations during the tour will contribute to scientific research on local plants and connect you to Project BudBurst, a national network of citizen scientists just like you. Please note: This tour is held outdoors. We suggest bringing sunscreen, protective clothing and water. The tour is canceled if it rains or snows.

Date: Saturday, March 15
Time: 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Tour meets in the lobby of the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory
FREE: No pre-registration required
