    Walking Tours-Main Garden

    Don’t just visit the Arboretum… EXPLORE it with your very own tour guide! Locate your tour guide in the main entry plaza at the South end of the Arboretum holding a “free walking tour” sign.

    During Autumn at the Arboretum, guests can enjoy complementary guided walking tours offered every day. This is a great way to hear about the development of our various gardens and the generous citizens who have been an integral part of their creation, learn about seasonal plantings, various trees, foliage and other garden features, and hear some of the “little known facts” and behind-the-scenes stories that will bring the Arboretum into full focus. Enjoy the expedition!
