FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The tour begins at 10 a.m. at Bidwell Mansion and lasts for about an 90 minutes. It is led by Durbin Sayers, manager of grounds; Wes Dempsey, professor emeritus of biology; and Gerry Ingco, retired forester.
The trip leaders will discuss current horticultural and pruning practices as well as make suggestions for selection of plants for Chico yards. Participants are encouraged to bring in leaves from plants they wish to have identified or talk about problems they are having with insects or diseases.
A map and guide to the mansion and the University trees and shrubs, titled “Campus Trees” is available at the Bidwell Mansion Information Center and the AS Bookstore. “Campus Creekside Nature Walk” is also available. These can also be purchased at the Department of Biological Sciences office in Holt Hall.
