Out on a Limb's First Birthday

This last year has been a huge success for Morris Arboretum, in large part because of our exciting new exhibit, Out on a Limb.  If you have never visited, you should take advantage of our late Thursday hours (we are open until 8:30) this summer - a chance to visit the garden in the cooler hours of the evening with the beautiful setting sun.  In celebration of the first birthday of the award winning exhibit, Out on a Limb, here at the Morris Arboretum, you’re invited to Out on a Limb’s first birthday party on July 3rd from 11am-1pm! (Learn more here)

In anticipation of Out on a Limb's first birthday celebration, we made a casting call for our members and visitors who had babies also celebrating their first birthday this July to join us in a photo shoot.  We had many enthusiastic parents wanting to show off their babies on Out on a Limb and everyone had a great time.  The babies were so cute and the shoot was fun for all the parents and staff involved.  Thanks to Nick Kelsh (, photographer and best-selling author, has an exceedingly impressive portfolio of baby pictures for running the shoot (one of which graces the cover of our Seasons magazine, due to reach homes later this month).

Here are a few shots:

Check your mailboxes later this month for the newest issue of Seasons with this great photo - happy birthday to all the babies and to Out on a Limb!
