Nature Play, a New Outdoor Event Series at Morris Arboretum Debuts May 5


On Saturday, May 5, 11am-3pm, Morris Arboretum will debut a children’s outdoor play series entitled Nature Play. These sessions of unstructured time use what’s available in the outdoors for fun; learning to love nature and loving to learn naturally.  This month, kids are invited to dig in the dirt, do a ribbon dance around a tree, make sculptures from natural materials, and discover the textures of spring.

Nature Play will be held the 1st Saturday of each month May through October, 11am-3pm, at a different location of the garden each session. Visitors may stop by anytime.  The May event will take place near the entrance to the Oak Allée, at the HaHa Wall.  These events are free with regular garden admission.  For more information,
