Each day will bring a new activity for all ages at the Arboretum. Come for one day or every day of the week!

Nature Painting

Join us out in the gardens to be inspired by the fall garden scenery. We will use sticks, leaves, seeds, and other natural materials from our gardens to make paint brushes. Children will delight in using different these fun paintbrushes to create their fall masterpiece.
