Morris Arboretum’s September Garden Discovery Series Presents: Sound in Nature


Lend an ear for Morris Arboretum’s Garden Discovery Series on Saturday, September 3, 11am-3pm featuring Sound in Nature.  Stop and listen to the sounds that fill the air around you. How are these sounds made?  How do they travel from one place to another? Visit the Discovery table and learn the answers to these questions while experimenting with tuning forks and tin can telephones.

The Garden Discovery Series is held on the first 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
