Plant CSI: What Happened to my Flowering Cherry Tree? (online)

Become a Plant Crime Scene Investigator (CSI)! Learn about key plant diseases and insect pests that can cause problems for favorite trees and shrubs in the landscape. There is nothing quite as exciting as a flowering cherry tree (Prunus spp.) beginning to bloom after a long cold winter. So it is quite disappointing to see flowers and leaves start to suddenly wilt, or oozing from cankers on the stems and trunks. Prunus species and varieties are prone to a number of common diseases and insect pests that over time can weaken or even kill a tree. This 1.5-hour online course will cover identification of blossom brown rot, bacterial canker, cherry mottle leaf, shothole (coryneum blight), cherry bark tortrix and tent caterpillar. Non-chemical management methods will also be discussed. Taught by Bess Bronstein Professional credits available: ISA - 1.75, APLD - 1.75, WSDA - 2, CPH - 2, ecoPRO - 2, NALP/WALP - 2 Cost: $35 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033).

Forest Bathing Walk (in-person)

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or call (206) 685-8033. Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu. Ticket Link: https://apps.ideal-logic.com/uwbg?key=2WSB-TGY2T_K9KH-5PTF_4ea0334540c0.

Forest Bathing Walk (in-person)

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest. Cost: $25 Register online or call (206) 685-8033. Contact Information: urbhort@uw.edu. Ticket Link: https://apps.ideal-logic.com/uwbg?key=2WSB-TGY2T_K9KH-5PTF_8d1b0a557ea6.

Plant CSI: Diagnosing Plant Problems in the Summer Landscape (In-person)

High summer in the maritime Pacific Northwest means our trees and shrubs are prone to suffering from excessive heat and lack of natural rainfall. These stressors can also cause plants to be more susceptible to disease and insect pest problems. This is a good time to check in with the plants and look for any new or more serious problems that have developed since spring. Please join us for the second class in the Seasonal Plant Diagnostic Walk series! These are hands on classes that will cover how to diagnose common plant problems, including how to scout and monitor for diseases and insect pests, how to recognize what is not normal for a plant, and what kind of management plan will work best for the issue. Join us in the UWBG Washington Park Arboretum and learn skills to help you keep your garden plants healthy and thriving.
