Special Programs and Events
Ongoing Events and Activities
Studies have shown that walking 10,000 steps a day will lead to sustainable weight control and improved cardiovascular health. It’s easy and fun to count your steps at the Arboretum because we’ve already done it for you. Simply enjoy your walk and take in the natural wonders of the Arboretum. Trails at the Arboretum have been measured for the number of steps an adult or child will take to complete them. You won’t even realize that you are getting exercise!
Monthly Programs and Activities
On the Second Saturday of each month (other than July and August)
Time: 9 a.m. – noon
Work varies but you should be ready to work on the trails. Bring your gloves and favorite loppers or pruners.
Note: Wear solid closed-toe shoes. Long pants are suggested to avoid skin irritation from accidental brushes with poison ivy.
You can do yoga on your own. If you have a mobile phone with a QR scanner, you can access suggestions for yoga poses located at various cyber stations around the Lake Loop Trail. The poses are demonstrated by Olympic gold-medal-winner Shannon Miller.
The monthly yoga classes have been cancelled. Due to other commitments, Brenda Starwalker, the certified yoga instructor who has led the Yoga Parcourse this past year, is unable to continue the program. We thank Brenda for leading this popular offering at the Arboretum and wish her well.
A Walk in the Woods
On the fourth Saturday of each month (April has two dates), we meet at the front kiosk and walk in the woods. There are two walks: one fitness and one nature-oriented. Both are fun and informative. Both are free and open to the public.
General Information: (More specifics in the e-Newsletter)
Fitness Walks twice monthly on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 8 a.m.
Nature Walk once monthly on the 4th Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
