The Morton Arboretum invites four-legged friends and their owners to roam 16 miles of woods, prairies and other natural landscapes during the Tails on the Trails event Saturday, September 12.
Tails on the Trails will feature dog-friendly activities, including agility demonstrations and guided hikes through the grounds. Additionally, a pet expo will take place along Meadow Lake from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.
October is a spectacular month to check out The Morton Arboretum and our abundant fall color. Enhance your trip to the Arboretum by tuning into these beautiful classical music selections while traveling our 16 miles of trails or winding around our 9 miles of paved roads.
There’s no better place to be on a hot August day than the shade of a tree. It’s cool and green, full of music from the rustling of leaves and the song of birds. No stress can last long under a tree. It’s true. Researchers have documented many ways that trees lift our spirits and help our health. So let’s enjoy the shade of the trees we have and protect them for summers to come.
