Celebrate springtime magic!

UW is famous for the blossoming of cherry trees in the quad each spring. The main species of cherry blossom on campus is Somei-yoshino, with other varieties including Higan, Hisakura, Kwanzan, Mt. Fuji and Shirofugen. 

At the Burke, enjoy tree-themed puzzles, books, and crafts in the Experience Alcoves. Spot the five hidden Huskies in the galleries to earn a special cherry blossom pin you can decorate and wear home! Free with regular admission while supplies last.

While the peak bloom is typically mid-March, it's all up to the cherry blossoms! Check the UW website for the latest campus cherry blossom updates.
