Google map of the locations of Arboretum introductions

When you first click on the link in the story to the Google map of the locations of Arboretum introductions, this is what you’ll see; a list of all the plants with their locations as dots on the map. Click on “Satellite” view in the upper right corner of the map to see the information displayed over a photographic map.

For all of us who are painting the plants introduced by the Los Angeles Arboretum (or even those of us who want to find those plants from the list), we have a link to a Google map of the locations of Arboretum introductions throughout the grounds (thank you Frank!).

This this data is about five years old, so some plants from our list may be missing from the map, but it’s a great start.  When you open the site, click on “satellite” view and zoom in.  Then you’ll be able to see the paths and roads in the Arboretum, which will make it easier to find things and find your way around.

Happy painting!
