Reservations: Required

Thomas Jefferson's passion for gardening arose from his truly wide-eyed curiosity about natural history and the "tranquil pursuits" of science. Peggy Cornett, Curator of Plants at Monticello, will lead this two-hour trek through the forests of Monticello. Participants will examine autumn wildflowers, seedpods and nuts, trees, mammals, birds, the skies, fungi, insects, and geology with the historical perspective of the sage of Monticello ever in mind. Please wear sturdy shoes and be prepared for muddy slopes and uneven terrain. Reservations required. Meets at the Garden Center, Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center, 9:30 am. $10.
