HURI expert, George Grabowicz, will provide an introduction to the tour.

Ukrainian culture is rich with references to the natural world. Join a one-hour walking tour with Arboretum Horticulturist Brendan Keegan. Learn about plants within the Arboretum's collections that are notable in Ukrainian history, cuisine, agriculture, and more. The tour is in support of our colleagues at botanical institutions throughout Ukraine. 

This tour is limited to 15 participants. We ask that you only register if you are sure you will attend, and only register one person per form submission. 

Please meet on the steps of the Hunnewell Building at 125 Arborway. Find directions here. Street parking is available outside most entrance gates, along the Arborway, Bussey Street, and the Arboretum perimeter.
