“10 Signs of Spring” Walk @ Glen Providence Park - main entrance
Apr 10 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

[Strict attendance limit – email registration is required] 

After a long winter, Spring has finally arrived in Glen Providence Park!  Join us for our first walk with Retired Professor of Ornamental Horticulture Rick Ray as he shares with us his vast knowledge of the plant world. Rick has taught woody and herbaceous plant identification and culture, plant propagation and landscape techniques. In addition to being co-founder of the Marple Tree Commission, he has introduced four new plants to the horticulture world and is a popular speaker at garden clubs and professional symposia.

For our 10th Anniversary year, Rick will share 10 Signs of Spring in the Park.

Rain or shine!*
