Nebraska's Emily Levine leads a tour of the gardens on East Campus. The tour is part of a free, monthly series held on the first Tuesday of the month through November.

This year, the tour will highlight new, recently installed plants. As always, partipants will focus on examining woody and herbaceous plants upclose and follow their seasonal changes. Cultural and historical aspects of the plants will be discussed as well.

The tours are free and open to the public. Participants will meet at the Karl Loerch Gazebo, one block east of the Dairy Store. In the event of inclement weather, the tour will be held the second Tuesday of the month.

Learn more about the tours on the UNL Gardens webpage.
