2017 Redwood Garden Party

Sunday, October 8

3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

hosted by Robert Hignite and Scott Gordon in the garden of the historic Cozart Home located at 900 Nash St NW


Why are the redwoods of Wilson so interesting? The coastal redwood tree is a native species of the Pacific Northwest, not the coastal plains of North Carolina. In 1942 W. T. Lamm, a Wilson resident and cotton magnate, brought the first three trees to Wilson from a Virginia nursery. The mild and humid climate suits their needs. Today, there are seven redwoods growing in our community. If you look carefully, you'll see one of these majestic trees towering above our natural tree line.

After a feature article in Our State Magazine, a few people decided to celebrate the redwoods growing here as a chance to support the Imagination Station. Join this special group of supporters and help bring science and history to life.
