Weekend Picks: Enjoy the Height of Spring

Morris Arboretum is bursting with spring blooms. From strength training to a leisurely stroll, we've got a variety of ways to enjoy the scenes.

  • Friday, April 24 - Get Outside with Stroller Strides®!

    10:00 - 11:00am; Registration and payment required. 
    Stroller Strides® is a total fitness program that moms can do with their babies - it includes power walking, strength-training intervals, and body toning exercises using exercise tubing, the stroller, and the environment. Taught by a certified and specially trained instructor, it is a great workout for any level of exerciser.
  • Saturday, April 25 - Arbor Day Family Day  

    11:00am - 3:00pm; Free with garden admission, takes place throughout the garden.
    Branch out as a naturalist and dig into learning about trees. Design a tree house, make a “tree map” with five different types of trees, create a street landscape with trees, learn how to “read” the life of a tree, and shadow an arborist to learn what’s involved in caring for trees.
  • Sunday, April 26 - Enjoy the Magnificent Trees of Spring 

    Throughout the garden. Come see the diversity of our ornamental trees in bloom. A stunning array of cherries, magnolias, and dogwoods are now flowering.
