Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about the plans for the Arboretum’s new multi-use trail before construction begins in spring 2015! The tour will be led by Roger Williams, Arboretum Foundation Board Vice President, who will discuss the overall plans of the project and show us by foot (or cart!) where the new trail will lead.

He is the Principal of Roger Williams Architecture and is a fellow in the American Institute of Architects and a member of the Japan Institute of Architects.

In April 2011, the Foundation introduced a new way for folks to explore the jewel of Seattle’s park system: “Arboretum Walks & Talks.”
On the first Thursday of every month, Arbor Circle, Legacy Circle, and Steward-level members of the Foundation plus their guests are invited to join us for a special guided walking tour. “Arboretum Walks and Talks” is hosted by our Executive Director, Paige Miller, and led by a diverse group of plant experts and enthusiasts. Each month, the tour features a different speaker/walk leader and highlights a different section or collection in the Arboretum. There’s always plenty of time for Q&A during the tours, and each one concludes with a light reception.
We encourage you to bring your friends—up to two guests allowed per member on each tour—to share in this informative and pleasant outing. The tours begin at the Graham Visitors Center. Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable shoes!
For more information about the tours, please email Randall Hitchin or call him at 206-325-4510.
