About This Event

Family Night Hike: Around The World! 

Come experience the Arboretum through a whole new lens as we explore the gardens at night!  We may come across rabbits, bats, coyotes (from a safe distance), the occasional owl, and more while adventuring to a different part of the gardens each week! Can you think of what creatures come out at night?  Maybe a spider spinning a web or night heron on the lake?  Do you notice different scents in the air, or that certain plants behave differently, as nighttime falls? Have you ever used the stars to guide your way?  On this evening adventure, see the arboretum in a whole new light. (Or should we say, a whole new dark?)

Our September Family Adventure Night Hikes feature “Around the World” explorations of the Arboretum.  While discovering distinct international bioregions of the garden, we will learn about the animals of the Arboretum, the evening behavior of certain plants, and the botanical and cultural uses of natural materials unique to those regions. We will explore: Africa- September 7th; Asia- September 21st; Australia- September 28th

Each program begins with a storytelling session, followed by a hike through the gardens with interactive  botanical explorations along  the route.  Jackets, comfortable walking shoes, and water bottles are recommended.  Guests are encouraged to come wearing their favorite animal costumes or accessories to “blend in” with the evening critters of the Arboretum!  Children must be accompanied by an adult. This is an adventure your family will not soon forget!

Registration includes admission to the Arboretum. Pre-registration is encouraged, as hikes sell out quickly.  Questions? Please call the Education Department at 626.821.4623.
