This May and June, The Morton Arboretum offers “tree-riffic” special events, programs for children and families and adult classes to welcome summer. In May, we’ll again welcome dogs and their companions for Tails on the Trails, a day of hiking, pet demonstrations, and a pet expo on May 9. Celebrate trees, learn about some of the rarest growing on our grounds and discover more about the Arboretum’s conservation efforts and what you can do to help on Endangered Species Day, May 15.
