Tours at 1pm and 3pm
The Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier (LEAF) invites the community to celebrate spring by visiting LEAF (1501 W 6th St, Erie) on Saturday, May 13 for a “LEAF in Bloom” Spring Walking Tour Event. LEAF board member and Penn State Extension Educator Ruth Benner and founding board member Lou Richards will lead engaging and educational walking tours at 1pm and 3pm.
The spring brings many colors, shapes and sizes of blooms among the trees to the arboretum, and May is the peak season for viewing. Participants will enjoy a walk through the groves of blooming trees to see the showy dogwoods, the delicate redbuds and the masses of flowers on the ornamental cherries and crabapples. Participants will also learn about the flowering shade trees and their benefits to the landscape.
Cost is $5 ($2 for LEAF Plus Members / Children under 5 free). Refreshments included. Pre-registration is required. Visit www.leaferie.org/leaf-in-bloom to register online or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (814) 453-LEAF.
