Special Programs and Events
Our 5th Anniversary Event!
The Art of Nature
Our 5th anniversary event, The Art of Nature, was held on Saturday, November 9, 2013 and proved to be a resounding success.
Please visit our Facebook page to see photos from the event.
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
Our regular volunteer workdays are on the second Saturday of each month from 9 am until noon, except July and August when none are scheduled.
Saturday, December 14
9 a.m. – Noon
This is a great time of year to come out for our volunteer workdays. With cooler temperatures and virtually no bugs, working in the great outdoors is very refreshing, with the added benefit of fall colors all around. So please come out and help us keep your Arboretum looking great. Your efforts really do make a difference and are greatly appreciated.
The Arboretum has some gloves and tools, but you are welcome to bring your own. Please wear long pants and closed-toed shoes. Volunteer workdays are a great way to meet new people, enjoy some exercise in the great outdoors and know that you are making a difference in support of the Arboretum!
We are now working on a volunteer database. This will help us match individual skills and interests with our specific volunteer needs. In the meantime,if you have a special skill or expertise that you can offer as a volunteer, please let us know. Go to email@example.com and put “volunteer” in the subject line.
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.
