Celebrate plant diversity, natural history, and the work of public gardens by spotlighting plants and their families. Join us for tours, family activities and festivities in the ginkgo collection on Peters Hill.

Most people can identify a ginkgo leaf  but what do you really know about the tree itself?

Come learn more about this living fossil and explore a collection that reflects the greatest known genetic diversity of wild-collected ginkgos in North America.

This is a drop-in activity. The event will be taking place in the ginkgo collection on Peters Hill. Street parking is available on Bussey Street.
