Thank you for attending our 3rd annual Destination Asia Festival on August 6 & 7, 2016. Check out images from the event on our Facebook page.

Explore Asian Tree Collections: Take a hike to our collections from China, Japan, and Korea and enjoy the beautiful plants native to Asia. Stop by the Destination Asia Discovery Cart located in Arbor Court to take a virtual tour of our trees from China, Japan, and Korea.  Pick an object from the cart and hear a story about one of the trees in our Asian Collections.  Each journey is unique based on the item picked. Explorers can also walk out to our tree collections to meet the tree whose story you heard.  Learn more about our Asian Collections at The Morton Arboretum.
