Arthur Lee Jacobson tour



Arthur Lee Jacobson's
Plant Tours

    Since 1980 I have given tours, lectures, and slide-shows about Seattle plants. Exploring Seattle, documenting plant occurrence, noting flowering and fruiting times, tasting edibles, and teaching others, is a joy. Tours allow people to benefit personally from my learning. As 2017 proceeds, I will keep adding tours to this page . . . In 2011 there were 16 tours listed between March and October; in 2012, there were 13; in 2013, there were 14; in 2014, there were 13; in 2015, there were 16; in 2016, there were 14.
    TIME: It varies. Most tours are on Sundays from 3:00 to 5:00. Dress for the weather, and be prepared to be walking for nearly all of the two hours. Usually at the end of the tour I ask if anyone cares to join me to sit down somewhere nearby for rest, chatting, a bite to eat and a drink.
    WHAT TO BRING: Whatever you prefer, such as notebooks, cameras, tape recorders, bags to put samples in, fieldguides. Please, no dogs.
    NO IFS, ANDS or BUTS: Tours are conducted even if it rains or if there is a low turnout. Registrants will be called if an emergency occurs.
    SIZE LIMIT: Tours are limited to 15 participants (only 10 for edible plant ones). First come, first served. For tours that sell out, additional ones may be scheduled. Moreover, custom tours can be arranged for your group.
    COST: The cost per participant is $10 (i.e., $9.17 plus $.83 sales tax). Payment by cash or checks only. If you prepay for a tour, but miss it, you receive credit for a future one.

    Details and registration: For additional information, or to register, call Arthur Lee Jacobson at (206) 328-TREE (328-8733).

    Note: The first 15 people who pay for a tour, fill it. If you don't want to commit yourself now, you can always wait, then call at the last moment to see if space remains. Most tours will have space available even on the very day they are scheduled.

UW Campus in Spring
    The enormous UW campus affords tremendous landscape plant diversity, plus wild ones. Many rare trees and shrubs were planted by forestry professors, botanists, and the gardening staff. We will encounter fascinating specimens. The Yoshino Cherry trees blossoming on the liberal arts quad are enchanting. Meet in front of the Burke Museum (free parking; nearby bus stops).
