Join the Master Gardener Volunteers for the next free tour of the Arboretum this Thursday, 2/3, starting at 10:00 AM.  The focus of February's tour will be a demonstration of proper pruning techniques.  Tours begin under the Green Roof Shelter in front of the Ag Center.  Click on the map link in the right column for directions.  Tours last about an hour and are held rain or shine (sleet or snow, but let's hope not).
