Earth Partnership for Families

The Arboretum’s Earth Partnership for Families program provides birding backpacks that can be checked out at no charge at the Visitor Center.

Bringing families together to learn about nature is an important part of our educational mission. Once a month we offer a family-friendly program that uses nature hikes, stories, crafts and activities to explore animals, plants and natural phenomena. Each program is free, thanks to support from the Friends of the Arboretum. On the second Sunday of every month, we offer a one-hour Family Walk with topics that are especially appealing to the younger set.
