Swallowtail butterflies flock to Virginia native buttonbush that grows well in wet soils.
Local experts will lead a “Tree and Shrub Walk” on Saturday morning, Sept. 5, near Marshall.

Representatives of Virginia Cooperative Extension and Master Gardeners of Fauquier and Rappahannock will show and describe some of their favorite trees, shrubs and perennials. Master Naturalist Tess McAllister and Master Gardeners Sharon Holmes, Alice Shelman and Tom Baughn will lead the tour and share their knowledge about the showcased plants.

The presentation will take place from 10 a.m. to noon.

The tour will depart from the Northern Fauquier Community Park offices at 4155 Monroe Parkway. The group will assemble in the first parking lot on the left after entering the park.

After the park walk, the group will tour the Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens at Schoolhouse 18 to see more examples of shrubs and perennials. 

After the tour, “Picks of the Litter” plants will be offered for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Master Gardeners to support their demonstration gardens, educational programs and help desk for answering garden questions. 
 The program is free of charge and open to the public. Because of COVID restrictions, it will be limited to the first 30 people who register. Masks and social distancing will be required.

To register call, Sharon Broyles at 540-341-7950, extension 0, or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The rain date will be Sunday, Sept. 6.
