SOLD OUT – Woods of the Trees of Kentucky

August 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Sunday, August 2
2 – 3:30pm
Graeser Family Education Center
$15 / $10 WBG members (use code WBGMEMBER at checkout to receive discount)
During this informal lecture by Janice Staugas, discover the beauty and diversity of Kentucky’s native trees — wood colors, grains, and valuable uses — at the last stage of the trees’ lifecycles.
Learn the technical definition of a tree, the seven ecological regions of Kentucky, and what trees are found in these regions. Appreciate the beauty of these trees’ wood in the forms of exquisite bowls, vases, and veneer samples, all under the natural light that bathes the interior of the Graeser Family Education Center. You will also gain an appreciation of how a veneer mill operates.
There will be social distancing during the lecture. Facemasks and hand sanitizing will be required, as registrants have an opportunity to touch and view (but not hold) raw and finished woods.

Refund Policy

Although we are unable to refund registration fees in the case of cancellation by the purchaser, the paid registration can be transferred to another student. In this case, please notify Allison Whitehouse at awhitehouse@waterfrontgardens.org or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only. Beargrass Canoe Tours have a different policy with no refunds under any circumstance because of river and weather volatility.

Emergency Cancellation

In the event of an emergency cancellation, the Gardens will contact registered students with a cancellation notice (always provide/maintain a current email address and phone number so that we may notify you of an emergency or cancellation). The Gardens will attempt to reschedule classes cancelled due to an emergency event if possible.
