RCWO Garden Walkabouts

River City Wild Ones is seeking hosts for “Walkabouts” — informal tours of gardens and landscapes managed by members. 

  • Two or three Walkabouts will be offered each month, depending on interest.
  • Walkabouts last about two hours, with guests coming and going.
  • Hosts select the day and time.
  • Walkabouts will be held rain or shine.
  • Walkabouts will begin July 2017 and continue through 2018.
  • Walkabout dates will be announced via regular RCWO’s communications.

NOTE: This is not a garden “inspection.” (We all deal with weeds!) If you choose to offer refreshments (not required or expected) keep it very simple. Be creative! How about a January winter hike, or a March visit to your greenhouse. 

If you are interested in hosting a Walkabout, download the form here. and return the form to any Steering Committee member at a general meeting, or mail to Marty Arnold, 2319 Lake Michigan Dr. NW 49504. If you have questions, please contact Marty, marty@paularnolddesign.com or call 616.791.4534.


No new Walkabouts are currently scheduled for 2018. This page will be updated as new Walkabout opportunities arise.
