Have you ever wondered... What’s an arboretum? Why do trees change color in the fall? Why are trees “good?” Why is fall a good time to plant trees?

For answers to these questions and more, please join local experts Kacey Burke, Sally Sullivan, and Ed Lester for a short presentation in the Woodland Center followed by a 2-hour walking tour of Spokane’s John A. Finch Arboretum.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required due to limited space. Register online.

Event begins at 1 p.m. in the Woodland Center. For more information, contact or call 509.363.5495.

Funding assistance for this event is provided by USDA Forest Service and Washington Department of Natural Resources; both are equal opportunity providers and employers.

About Urban Forestry

City of Spokane Urban Forestry is a department of the Spokane Parks and Recreation division. Trees are intrinsically connected to our lives - from the air we breathe to the value of our homes, the food we eat to the success of our business, and the water we drink to our shady afternoon respite. Spokane Urban Forestry's mission is to enhance the benefits provided to the citizens of Spokane through quality management, maintenance, protection and planting of public trees. Through stewardship of Spokane's urban forest, we aspire to connect people to the world of trees, and in doing so connect them to the strength of their own roots, the glory of their presence in this world, and the infinite reach of their influence.
