The days are getting hot and will only become more so as we head further into July, then August and September. Sometimes it is so hot, it’s difficult to enjoy the wonders that are our world. So, how about getting out before the heat strikes and see what’s blooming at the Arboretum? Docent-led walking tours are offered Tuesdays-Fridays at 10 a.m. Tours can even be adapted to the group’s interests. No reservations are required. For more info, visit Arboretum.org. Take your own tour early if desired as the Arboretum opens as early as 9 a.m.
Have a plant question? Don’t forget, you may ask an expert—an Arboretum expert—by contacting them here.
And, don’t forget the Arboretum’s evening live music series and family-friendly events. The cost is affordable at $5 general admission and $3 for children ages 5 to 12 (those under 5 years of age are free). Bring a picnic, a blanket, and a pillow if need be. Gates open at 5 p.m. and concerts begin at 6 p.m.
