It’s the gardener’s prerogative to decide what to plant. But what we don’t plant is important too.

Experience the Arts at the Arb

This summer, experience family-friendly theatrical performances and orchestral music in the great outdoors!

Discover the Arb After Dark

Though our gates normally close at sunset, we have plenty of opportunities this summer for families to adults and families to have fun here at night. From finding creatures that lurk in the dark to silent tram rides throughout the woods, you’ll find there is more to the Arboretum than what you see during the day.
