Morris Arboretum’s MORE Hidden Gems Tour!


On five spring Saturdays, April 27May 11 & 25, and June 8 & 22 at 11am, experience Morris Arboretum’s MORE Hidden Gems Tour, an all-new walking tour highlighting garden features not often discovered on an average visit.


Go off the beaten path to find rarely-seen garden gems, a combination of structures, sculptures, spaces, trees and vistas.  Guides will reveal something different about these garden treasures–an atypical angle in viewing them or a little-known story about them, such as Lydia’s seat, 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.  For more information, visit  No registration is required.  Tour is included with garden admission.
