1927 Map of the Arboretum


BPS students inspect bugs they collected while exploring the Arboretum.


Arboretum educators and volunteers provide nature and introductory plant science instruction to Boston Area school children through instruction in the landscape and in the classroom. In keeping with our educational mission, the Arnold Arboretum offers varied nature programs with a focus on plant science to preschool and elementary children and their teachers. Additionally, school groups may plan self-guided trips and take advantage of numerous education opportunities—including tours and family activities—both in the landscape and in the Hunnewell Visitor Center.
