Arboretum Story Slam

Join us for this unique storytelling event where participants come together to share their personal experiences around nature, plants, or the Arboretum itself. Come prepared with a 5-minute story, or just come to listen. All interested storytellers will put their name in a hat and we will pull as many names as we have time for: registering below helps us to plan but doesn’t guarantee you a storytelling slot! Seating will be on the grass so blankets and camp chairs are encouraged.

A note for storytellers: all stories should be true recollections of your own personal experience. Stories should be approximately 5 minutes long, with a one-minute grace period: we will be gently cutting people off at 6 minutes. Stories can be comedic or heartfelt, but should relate to the theme in some way.

Accessibility: This program takes place on the mowed grass in the Bradley Rosaceous Collection, just off the paved Meadow Road.

Audience: This program is appropriate for all ages.

Inclement weather policy: Participants will be notified via email at least 24 hours in advance if a program needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, and will be notified by phone if a program must be cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice. Click here to view our full inclement weather policy. If you have questions about the status of a program, please email or call the Visitor Center desk between 10:00am and 4:00pm at (617) 384-5209.
