Friends of the Hilltop Arboretum Symposium

January 28

This year’s Friends of the Hilltop Arboretum Symposium is observing Arbor Day by focusing on our beloved local oaks through two Zoom presentations that viewers can enjoy from the comforts of their own home. Sessions will be recorded if participants are unable to watch live.

The first presentation, held on Wednesday and called “The Nature of Oaks: The Rich Ecology of Our Most Essential Native Trees” will feature Dr. Douglas Tallamy, who will discuss the complex and fascinating web of life that oaks foster. He will highlight the cycles of tree life from season to season, illuminating the wonders of our ancient neighbors.

The second presentation is titled “Tree Guru Talks Oaks,” featuring Scott Courtright on Frida, who will present on the diversity of our native red and white oaks, as well as the conditions that best foster them.

Each lecture is from 6 pm–7 pm. $65; $50 Hilltop members. lsu.edu/hilltop.
