The Arboretum in March
From the architecture of bare branches to colorful berries, evergreen boughs, and ornamental bark—there’s so much to enjoy at the Arboretum in winter. View highlights of the season on our interactive map.
Whether the ground is still blanketed in a thorough covering of snow, or finally losing its white coat, the Arboretum in March is quiet and beautiful with some joyful early blossoms and gorgeous bark. Take our last Winter Wellness Walk of the season on Sunday, March 8 and enjoy a healthy excursion and interesting look at the March landscape with docent and Park Ranger, Walter Evans.
