Join David Stevens, curator of the Longenecker Horticultural Gardens living collections, for an exclusive tour of Wisconsin’s premiere collection of woody plants. The Gardens, often referred to as a tree museum, were first established in 1935 and contain Wisconsin’s largest collection of woody plants with approximately 4,000 specimens representing over 2,600 taxa spread over 38 acres. David, the collection’s third curator since its inception, will lead us on a one-of-a-kind tour interweaving garden history, stories behind iconic specimens along with seasonal plant highlights. Meet on the steps of the Arboretum Visitor Center at 9 a.m.
