Tree Flash

What is Tree Flash?

A Tree Flash is a short, fun, interactive program led by Holden staff experts and focused on plants, and plant-related topics. These impromptu gatherings will be held when the featured plant, garden or topic is at its best. Tree Flash participation may be large or small depending on who shows up.


What can I expect?

Each Tree Flash will meet at the Corning Visitor Center and takes place outdoors. Dress for the weather of the day. Length of program and walking conditions will be indicated in each Tree Flash announcement.


Is there a charge?

Each Tree Flash is free for members. Nonmembers pay gate admission.
