In 2007, a seemingly difficult greening challenge was solved; how to beautify a section of parkway that would otherwise have fallen victim to vandalism and graffiti. The challenge was successfully met and yielded many benefits for the community and local zoo inhabitants.

An experienced forester will be guiding a tour of the parkway trees and tree alternatives for the urban climate. Trees and bamboo planted in extremely difficult sites will be examined.

Topics covered:

Past and Present
Systematic Diversification
Identification References
Surroundings and context clues
Patterns and branching
Habit and Identification 

Meeting Location: 24th Place and Wentworth

Tour Location: Chinatown beginning at 24th and Wentworth and a walk along the parkways leading to Ping Tom Park.
