Autumn Fest at the Arboretum

Class is in session! Mother Nature’s class, that is. The Chesapeake Arboretum celebrated its third annual Autumn Fest with something for everyone. The Butterfly Society of Virginia kept busy with a line of anxious children waiting to have their faces painted while adults gathered for the guided tours of the trail. Tour guides Jack Erwin and Ed Bradley informed each group about the numerous types of trees and the benefits they have for our environment. Misty Townsley’s booth also made quite an impression with her WormWatcher compost kit. Who knew saving the environment could be so much fun?
