  • Come experience the Arboretum in a whole new light (or should we say, a whole new dark?), as we explore the gardens at night. Our Night Hike programs begin with a storytelling session, followed by a hike through the gardens with interactive botanical explorations along the route. We explore a different theme each month! Jackets, comfortable walking shoes, and water bottles are recommended. This is an adventure your family will not soon forget!

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