The Washington Park Arboretum is jointly managed by UW and the City of Seattle, its 230 acres are a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else. The grounds are open, however, at this time all buildings are closed, including the Graham Visitor Center, gift shop, and bathrooms. There is a port- a-potty in the parking lot.

Meeting location:

I will be setup to greet PAWA members at the entrance of Graham Visitor Center @ 9:00 AM - I will be there until 10:00 AM . Please call me after 10:00 AM because we might spread out in the park.

The Rhododendron Walk is a long trail, beautiful with the Rhodies blooming! Most will be along that trail. There are also interesting views around the Visitors Center.

There are many plant collections, including Asiatic Maples, Birches and Poplars, Camellias, Hawthorns, Hollies, Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Japanese Maples, etc. Plan ahead and view/print out a trail map: https://depts.washington.edu/uwbg/docs/2018-trailmap-brochure.pdf
