Hoyt Arboretum offers a variety of field trips and nature programs to get youth outside and to nurture the next generation of environmental stewards.
Tree Time! is scheduled on Mondays at 10am year-round and explores toddler-friendly themes like slugs, spiderwebs, and flowers. Recommended for children ages 2 to 6 year olds.
Pop Up Nature! encourages youth to learn about different science topics through self-led activities. Free to all, Pop Up Nature! is a great way to get acquainted with all that the Arboretum has to offer.
School field trips for elementary students and other private youth groups can be coordinated for parties of between 20 and 60 students. Trips are led by our knowledgeable volunteer Arboretum Naturalists and introduce students to the life cycles, adaptations, and biodiversity of trees.
Family Tours are running weekly on Wednesdays alternating in grade level for youth. This tour will focus on the diverse life cycles and adaptations of trees that allow them to survive in environments from all around the world. Come learn in our living tree museum! All walks are 2 hours and led by our Volunteer Naturalist Educators.
