Family Forest Days

Family Forest Days

Spark your children’s curiosity and get them engaged with nature with hands-on science and self-led activities through the Arboretum.

Bring your family and drop by the Visitor Center, where a volunteer naturalist will present a pop-up nature presentation and accompanying display that your family can then use to complete a fun activity as you stroll among the trees.

Family Forest Day themes address essential and fascinating aspects of plant life, like why do trees turn color in the fall, and how do seeds get dispersed? You might go on a pollinator scavenger hunt, observe leaves under a microscope, or find Arboretum residents in their habitats.

These events are free to all and run rain or shine from April through October. Check the Events calendar or sign up for the Hoyt Arboretum e-newsletter to stay updated on upcoming dates and themes.
