The federal government may be shut down, but here in Philadelphia, America’s Garden Capital–with more gardens than anywhere in North America–Morris Arboretum is open and welcomes all federal employee and their families to visit for FREE through the end of the government shutdown.

The winter months are a great time to discover the garden and its seasonal blooms.  Walk along the paved paths throughout the 92-acre garden and look for snowdrops, one of the earliest blooming bulbs and winter aconite. As we move into February visitors can enjoy Morris Arboretum’s extensive witchhazel collection, one of the first blooming shrubs with a fragrant spicy scent in hues from red to orange to yellow.

Fresh air and winter blooms – a great way for the family to welcome the New Year!
