Celebrate the end of winter with a walk at NJBG

Both trees will be splendidly colorful in just a few weeks time. The bench provides a lovely view of the Ramapo Highlands. Meet these and many other beautiful trees at NJBG’s annual End-of-Winter Tree Walk.
RINGWOOD — NJBG will sponsor an End-of-Winter Tree Walk at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden on Sunday, March 23, at 1 p.m. Though it’s still chilly outside, the signs of spring are already visible in many places if you know where to look!
Join Head Landscape Designer Rich Flynn for an educational walk in the Botanical Garden. You’ll meet dozens of beautiful trees and learn how to identify them from their structure, branching, and budding patterns before the leaves once again appear. You’ll enjoy the subtle signs of spring peeking out everywhere – a sure cure for cabin fever after a long hard winter.
Meet at the Carriage House Visitor Center at 1 p.m., and wear comfortable shoes. Snow or heavy rain cancels. The Tree Walk is open to the public free of charge, but a $5 donation is welcomed.
The New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the year. Admission to the Botanical Garden is always free. In the spring, parking is also free.
NJBG/Skylands is located on Morris Road in Ringwood. For an event schedule, membership brochure, directions or more information, call 973-962-9534 or visit www.njbg.org.
