Morris Arboretum’s Garden Discovery Series continues on July 2, 11am-3pm with Dirty Slimy Fun! Kids will get their hands muddy while becoming acquainted with the Arboretum’s pet red wiggler worms. Little fingers are the perfect tools to help dig and discover these squirming nematode friends.
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, especially intrepid adventurer, Ethan, pictured here. For more information, visit www.morrisarboretum.org.
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 www.morrisarboretum.org.
