Tree Care Tips at Wildflower Center
Winter is planting time for woody species in Central Texas, and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center shows you how at free admission Tree Talk Winter Walk. Enjoy a tree planting tutorial, tree identification tips and more during guided walks mid-day in the Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum (access it from the central courtyard past the café, using Hill Country Trails entry). At the Arboretum Tent area, purchase native trees and shrubs and Yan Lee’s tree drawings, learn to count tree rings and more. Kids’ activities include supervised tree climbs, and author Margie Crisp signs her Colorado River book in The Store after her 10 a.m. walk.
