Azalea Bloom with Author Bryan Mackay
May 2, 2020
$85 Per Person with Lunch and Transportation
The National Arboretum is one of the lesser known gems of Washington, DC, but nowhere else are the glories of spring so abundantly displayed.  We expect more than 50,000 azaleas to be near peak flowering!  We'll stroll the wood chip paths of Azalea Hill in search of the perfect bush.  The National Bonsai Museum never fails to enchant, and the National Capitol Columns adorn a nearby meadow.  Finally, we'll walk the trails of Fern Valley in search of native wildflowers, where our naturalist guide and author of Hike Maryland and A Year Across Maryland, Bryan MacKay will delight you with tales of botanical trivia.  To cap off the morning, we'll enjoy a gourmet lunch at picnic tables under large shade trees. Van transportation from Pickering Creek to the National Arboretum provided. Call 410-822-4903.  REGISTER
