MOUNT PISGAH ARBORETUM

One of the shining jewels of Lane County, Mount Pisgah Arboretum is a 209-acre living tree museum. Its riverside trails, quiet paths through evergreen forests, water garden teeming with life, bright wildflower meadows, and open views across oak savannas delight all ages. Located within the Howard Buford Recreation Area, the Arboretum lies between the Coast Fork of the Willamette River and the slopes of Mount Pisgah.

The lecture will be held in the White Oak Pavilion. The pavilion will be lit, and the lecture will be amplified so everyone can hear.
