Youth and Families

There is something for children of all ages at Hoyt Arboretum! We offer a variety of nature programs for youth, families, schools, and other groups, as well as self-led activities to get everyone engaged with the natural world:

  • Tree Time! children ages 2-6 accompanied by an adult explore nature together every Monday and Saturday morning.
  • Seasonal Activities provide experiments, fact sheets, and more for self-paced discovery.
  • Free Discovery Packs are full of tools to help your family engage with the Arboretum plants and animals.
  • School field trips are available for guided and self-guided experiences on the Arboretum trails.
  • Forest Field Day homeschool program for ages 5-14 every second Thursday and Friday.
  • Pop-Up Nature! shares different science topics through self-led activities during the summer months.

You can also explore Hoyt Arboretum with our Children’s Adventure Map!
