WABA has organised a field trip to do a free guided tour of the Arboretum. A volunteer guide will show us around some of the forests, and talk about the trees, focusing on endangered species (both Australian natives and exotic species). Hopefully, many species will be in flower and/or leaf.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the plantings on site, plan artwork for WABA's exhibitions next year and/or some artwork for sale in the gift shop at the Arboretum (either original artwork, or prints/ cards/ bookmarks). It is also a great opportunity to catch up with other WABA members and enjoy the spectacular views over Canberra.
Following the tour, you may wish to walk/drive around the Arboretum to draw or paint some of the trees, so bring your preferred art materials with you. There is a cafe and a restaurant in the Village Centre, or you may prefer to bring your own lunch.
Date: Friday 1 November
Time: 10am- 11.30am
Meet: inside the main entrance of the Village Centre
Length of tour: 1.5 hours
Maximum participants: 15
