Youth Programs

Hoyt Arboretum offers a variety of field trips and youth nature programs to get kids out among trees and nurture the next generation of environmental stewards.

Toddlers can learn about the Arboretum residents like coyotes and baby owls, families might observe leaves under microscope, while workshops explore deeper botanical themes.

Field Trips for elementary students and other 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.

Tree Time! Preschool Walks are year-round, bimonthly nature walks for preschoolers. Volunteer naturalists take children and their parents on a stroll through the Arboretum and focus on different themes like slugs, spiderwebs, and flowers.

On Pop Up Nature! Days, a volunteer naturalist sets up a nature station at the Visitor Center with hands-on learning activities for children and families, along with a self-led activity. Free to all, Pop Up Nature! is a great way to get acquainted with all that the Arboretum has to offer.
