Keith Tomlinson, Manager of Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, and expert on native plants, will lead a hike through one of the great botanical preserves of Northern Virginia. The Winkler Preserves near Seminary Road and I-395 in Alexandria is a nearly 50-acre oasis of nature and beauty. Established by the Winkler Foundation, the Preserve offers a remarkable location to learn about the native ecosystems of our area.
Mr. Tomlinson has worked as an interpretive naturalist and natural resource manager over the past thirty years and worked at the Winkler Preserve prior to his career at NOVA Parks. He currently leads conservation and programmatic efforts at Meadowlark. This is a unique opportunity to explore the Winkler Preserve with an expert and learn about this local treasure.
