Garden Walk Schedule
December 2019 – April 2020
Discover seasonal highlights in the Garden with a knowledgeable Garden Guide.
Avoid the chilly weather and take a tropical mini-vacation inside the Conservatory. Look carefully at major groups of plants that reside there – ferns, orchids, palms and unusual blooming tropical plants.
Join your Garden Guide on a Garden tour that explores the senses! In addition to vision, smell and touch, the senses of taste and sound will be engaged as you experience the Garden through various perspectives.
Venture with your Garden Guide to the Streb Conifer Garden to see the many varieties of conifers suitable for Richmond’s plant hardiness zone.
When the weather cooperates, the Garden excels at “springtime,” with millions of blooms emerging. Analyze the beautiful designs created by Garden horticulturalists and consider how you can create your own version in containers, pot groupings or small beds.
Learn about citizen (or community) science with your Garden Guide and discover how the Garden is helping the community through observing nature. You will leave the tour inspired to participate in this crowd-sourced scientific project.
