Tree in an arboretum

Participants will meet for an educational session and walk-through of the Strawberry Hill Arboretum. This event aims to bring more attention to this greenspace and provide basic urban forestry education. Topics such as tree identification, landscape tree use, benefit to pollinators and wildlife, and future improvements will be discussed. N.C. Cooperative Extension of Watauga County Horticulture Agent Paige Patterson and Intern Garret Rimmer will lead the tour through the diverse selection of native and ornamental tree species and explore the GIS map that Garret has created which identifies each tree in the arboretum. Bring your smartphone if you have one, but a print version will be available, and the public will also be able to access an online link to the interactive map.

This is a free event, but please make sure to sign up via the Eventbrite link above, or call our office at 828-264-3061 if you are unable to sign-up via the link.

*Considerations: There will be uphill walking involved as participants will walk along the hillside on the 0.4-mile trail. Restrooms will be available.
