On May 26th, Dumbarton House will be offering a walking tour focused on trees. The tour will be led by professional tour guide Dwayne Starlin, but GM will be there as a special guest to chime in with some wisdom he’s accrued from writing his Know Your Trees series.
Here’s the info:
Washington, D.C. has long been known as “The City of Trees.” But can you identify our trees by name & variety? Frederick Law Olmsted was good enough to label the ones that he had planted on the grounds of our Capitol but we don’t enjoy that luxury along our Georgetown streets and in our parks. Join Dwane Starlin, member of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides, and his guest speaker, Christopher “Topher” Matthews of the Georgetown Metropolitan, on a scenic stroll of one of D.C.’s truly green and well-shaded neighborhoods.
