Oaks and Their Kin

Date(s) - August 8, 2024

Oaks are famously renowned trees across the northern hemisphere. However, they are only one lineage of a family filled with species of equal renown including beech, chestnut, chinkapin, and tanoak. This walk will explore Hoyt Arboretum’s collection of oaks and their closest relatives while exploring the unique traits of each lineage. We’ll discuss how they have impacted humans–and how humans have impacted them.

  • Class size is limited and pre-registration is required
  • Registration closes Wednesday, August 7th at 4:00pm
  • Walk will be on sloping, soft-surface trails
