— This week may not have been an indication but spring is coming next week. The New Jersey Botanical Garden will sponsor an End-of-Winter Tree Walk at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden on Saturday, March 18, at 10 a.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 their leaves once again appear, and you’ll enjoy the subtle signs of spring peeking out everywhere.

Meet at the Carriage House Visitor Center at 10 a.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 every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the winter). Admission 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.
