Morris Arboretum Offers New Hidden Gems Tour
In the new Hidden Gems Tour, Morris Arboretum Guides will showcase little known garden spots throughout the 92-acre Arboretum. Planned at 11am on Saturdays, April 22, May 13, May 27, June 10, and June 24, this tour is a combination of structures, sculptures, trees and vistas. Many are off the beaten path or concealed to most visitors. Others are near the main paths and considered “hidden in plain view”. Guides will reveal something different about these garden gems–an atypical angle in viewing them or a little-known story about them, such as the Mercury Loggia, pictured here. The tour lasts approximately an hour and a half. Visitors will be walking over some uneven ground and cover quite a bit of territory, so dress appropriately! Free with admission.
Morris Arboretum is a 92-acre horticultural display garden that features a spectacular collection of mature trees in a beautiful and colorful landscape. The official arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, effective 1988, Morris Arboretum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and accredited by the American Association of Museums.
