J C Raulston Arboretum - Upcoming Events
This year's series of every other week lectures at the JCRA in Raleigh starts this coming Thursday night at 7:30 pm (Sept 4th), with a talk by the director, Dr. Dennis Werner. A calendar of upcoming events is attached. All of these lectures are open to the public for a small fee ($5) and free to members of the Friends of the Arboretum. The free plant giveaway for members will be Oct. 11th and most people walk away with plants worth more than the cost of a membership. Membership benefits include discounts at local nurseries and restaurants.
