Thomas Jefferson and Natural History Walk

Garden Center, The Shop at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center
Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 9:30am to 11:30am

Thomas Jefferson’s passion for gardening arose from his truly wide-eyed curiosity about natural history and the “tranquil pursuits” of science. Monticello Curator of Plants, Peggy Cornett, 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.

The Natural History Walk will also be offered on October 11.
