The Visitor Center and art exhibit are open on our winter schedule: open 12:00pm–4:00pm daily, except Wednesdays (closed). As ever, the Arnold Arboretum and Visitor Center are open free to all.
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.
As winter closes in on the city, take a closer look at our conifer collection. With the landscape open for discovering shape and structure, the conifers stand out and invite observation. To find out more about one of our native conifers, blue or Colorado spruce (Picea pungens), and where you can see it in our landscape, download the latest Tree-of-the-Month activity [pdf]. For other plants to check out during your visit, review the Current Plant Highlights from the Arboretum’s Flickr page (preview at right).
Look for next month’s Winter Wellness Walk, designed to keep you active outside during the winter months. The details about this free, once-a-month winter series can be found on our guided tours page, under tour listings. Register for one or more. Our regular week-end tours will be starting up again in April for the 2015 season. However, our landscape is open sunrise to sunset 365 days a year, so you can always use your mobile device to continue to explore our collections.
Be sure to check out classes and other activities on the calendar. Don’t forget to visit the current art show by Josh Falk, Small Worlds: Through a Small Glass Window, on view through February 3, 2015.
