Morris Arboretum’s August Garden Discovery Series Presents: “Beeaware” of the Sweetness of Summer


Morris Arboretum’s Garden Discovery Series continues on August 6, 11am-3pm with “Beeaware” of the Sweetness of Summer.  Beautiful bees give us so much!  Discover fascinating facts about these amazing arthropods, while learning about how pollination happens.  Morning visitors will also have the opportunity to taste a variety of honey (while supplies last).

The Garden Discovery Series is held on the 1st Saturday of each month from April through October. Participants explore little known parts of the garden, learn secrets of nature, and create something magical. Garden Discovery Series events run from 11am-3pm and visitors may stop by anytime.  These events are free with regular garden admission and are fun for everyone.  For more information, visit

The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania is located at 100 East Northwestern Avenue in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.  The 92-acre horticulture display garden features a spectacular collection of mature trees in a beautiful and colorful landscape. The Arboretum includes numerous picturesque spots such as a formal rose garden, historic water features, a swan pond, and the only remaining freestanding fernery in North America. A permanent nationally award-winning exhibit, Out on a Limb – a Tree Adventure Exhibit adds to Morris Arboretum’s allure by transporting visitors 50 feet up into the treetops on a canopy walk that requires no climbing.  Open weekdays 10am-4pm and weekends 10am-5pm.  Open late on Wednesdays in June, July, and August until 8:00pm.  For more information, visit
