Tour of the Visitor Center Landscape
The landscaping of Monticello's new visitor complex, recipient of a LEED Gold Level certification, is designed to blend the buildings into the native Monticello woodlands with plantings of North American native species and cultivars, including 40 species of trees, over 50 species of flowering shrubs, and 75 types of wildflowers and groundcovers. Join Peggy Cornett and Peter Hatch for a two-hour stroll through these rich habitats from the pavilions' green roofs through the rain-garden style greenway to the African-American Cemetery. Reservations required. Meets at the Garden Center, Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center, 9:30 a.m. $10.
