Chilean Trees Photographic Exhibition
Public talk: the Arboretum's Chilean species at home


Chilean Trees Photographic Exhibition 4 - 25 April, daily 9am - 4pm in the Village Centre

The Arboretum has seven forest species that are native to Chile. In mid-November 2016, thirteen Canberran's flew to Santiago for a guided tour in search of these and other interesting species in the national parks of Chile and Argentina. The group included Linda Muldoon, the Friends' photographer, as well as four guides - Jean Chesson, Len Crossfield, Joanne Maples and Jan Morgan.

The tour started in Santiago, went north to visit the World Heritage city of Valparaiso, then travelled south through the Chilean Lakes District, across the Andes into Argentina, and over to the island of Chiloé.

The photographic exhibition shares the group's experiences - the trees, animals, birds, lakes and even volcanoes. Presented by the Friends of the National Arboretum Canberra. Free event in the Village Centre. No bookings required. Enquiries: 6207 8484.
