Family Hike: Insect Safari

Get your recommended daily dose of nature at the Arnold Arboretum and explore the fascinating world of insects.

Nancy Sableski, Manager of Children's Education

Sunday, June 16, 2:00-3:30pm
Location: Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum

Families need nature at all times of the year! Meet inside the main gate at the Visitor Center. We’ll use nets and bug boxes to find insects in the meadow and the woods. Go on a StoryWalk, get a tattoo, and look at insects under microscopes!

Free and open to all, most suitable for children ages four through ten.

In case of inclement weather, contact 617.384.5209.
