Take a lunchtime break with Casey Trees to kick off Pollinator Week and learn about the benefits of host plants in urban environments!

Take a lunchtime break with Casey Trees! Join us Tuesday, June 21st for a lunchtime neighborhood walk to celebrate Pollinator Week. We’ll discuss native pollinator species and the benefits of native host plants in the urban environment.

Come out to learn more and meet your neighbors with Casey Trees Horticulturist, Maddie. No experience in identifying trees or plants is necessary!

The newly updated Casey Trees species guides will be available as an add-on when you purchase your ticket online (note: purchase of a species guide is not a ticket for admission).

What to expect: An easy walk around the Eastern Market neighborhood, stopping to identify trees, rain gardens, and connect with nature. Species guides will be available to use to identify trees.

Time: Check in will begin at 12:00pm. Please plan to arrive promptly.

What to bring: Comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, a filled reusable water bottle if you wish, and weather-appropriate clothing.
