These wonderful sessions on Trees at the Arboretum are run through the U3A. Please see below for more information and bookings.
This course, originally developed by an Arboretum guide, is being run again in 2020, led by four other Arboretum guides. Each of four parts of the course cover 24 tree species planted in forests at the Arboretum. The course content covers:
how the trees became ‘known to science’;
distributions, descriptions, uses;
whether they grow elsewhere in Canberra; and
some related stories.
Each of the four parts includes a guided walk at the Arboretum and another elsewhere in Canberra.
