    Autumn Equinox Evening Tree,  Melanie Choukas-Bradley, author of City of Trees and A Year in Rock Creek Park

    Spend the evening of the autumn equinox strolling through the Regional Garden where fall fruits are maturing and the first splashes of leaf color are beginning to show through. Learn to identify trees of the Mid-Atlantic Piedmont and Coastal Plain as you tour the Regional Garden with Melanie. She will teach you how to identify tupelo, hop-hornbeam, red buckeye, pawpaw, common persimmon, oaks, and many other native trees. She will also share some of the arboreal history of Washington, DC, which has long been known as the "City of Trees," and offer ideas for self-guided tree tours in and around the nation's capital. Please note: This tour is held outdoors. We suggest bringing sunscreen, protective clothing, and water. The tour is canceled if it rains or during times of extreme heat (heat index of 95 degrees or higher/Code Red weather alert).LOCATION: Tour meets by the entrance to the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory on the Terrace FREE: Pre-registration required
