Discover Dogwoods at Morris Arboretum’s Saturday Morning Live Tour May 4


Morris Arboretum’s popular Saturday Morning Live Tour Series returns for the season on May 4, at 11am. Led by experienced guides, these tours will highlight a different feature of the garden on the first Saturday of each month, May through December 2019 at 11am.  The May tour, Dogs and Barks, features the dogwood species, a favorite ornamental tree of homeowners, thanks to their many shapes and forms, modest size and four season appeal.  Guests will also compare and contrast the artistry of barks on a variety of trees– from the smooth beech bark, and the mottled lace-bark pine, to the alligator skin-like bark on the beloved dogwood. Tours begin at Widener Visitor Center. For more information, visit  No registration is required.  Tour is included with garden admission.
