Join us and explore the trees of Sebastopol—from the common to the one-of-a kind. We will depart the Plaza at 9:00, walk at a good pace through the streets of central Sebastopol, stopping at specific locations to identify trees in gardens and public spaces. A plant list will be provided.

Walkers will be introduced to many tree species: from young garden trees to heritage trees; California natives, Sebastopol natives, and introduced species.

Plant “geek” and former Plant Identification teacher, Virginia Anderegg, will share easy ways to identify trees. We will cover 3 to 4 miles with several planned stops to identify and appreciate the rich flora of our town, and return to the Plaza by 11:30.

Wear sunscreen, a hat and walking shoes. Bring water and a snack.

Leader: Virginia Anderegg, Botanist
