Join the Arboretum for a Night Hike April 23rd!

Join Arboretum Director Nancy Braker and Astronomer Joel Weisberg for an Arb Walk Under the Twilight and Stars.

The evening will begin with watching the sunset and an orientation to night in the Arboretum.  Participants will learn about what is heard at night during the spring – frogs and toads, owls and other birds. We will visit several locations in the Arb, listening for these sounds and looking up at the beautiful spring stars, Mars and Jupiter, while Weisberg tells his versions of the ancient constellation stories. While we anticipate being in the Arb until 10:00 p.m., you will be free to depart earlier if you wish.

Clouds would require a rescheduled date later in the week.  We request that you register so that we can update you on any re-scheduling. Find more information and register here.
