Event Date: 
Friday, 22 April 2016 to Saturday, 23 April 2016

A two-day Oak Open Day (OOD) is planned for April 22-23, 2016 to visit Argentina’s two most notable oak arboreta: Grigadale, planted by the late IOS member Duncan Cameron and continually added to by his son Roderick; and well-known IOS member Peter Laharrague’s Estancia San Miguel, a large and comprehensive arboretum containing the largest oak collection in Argentina. Whilst designed to attract local participants, Roderick is hoping that some members may be able to travel from abroad: if you would like to attend please contact the organizers at roderick@internationaloaksociety.org as soon as possible so they can arrange additional attractions to make the trip even more worthwhile.
