Family Hike: Pollinators
Families need nature at all times of the year!
Meet inside the main gate at the Visitor Center. We’ll seek out the wonderful insects that visit flowers for pollen and nectar. Go on a StoryWalk, get a tattoo, and look at bumblebees and honeybees in a bug box!
Free and open to all, most suitable for children ages four through ten.
In case of inclement weather, contact 617.384.5209.
You can get to the Arboretum by subway, bus, or car. Get directions to our main entrance at Arborway Gate, Peters Hill, Weld Hill Building, or Dana Greenhouses. Free parking is available along the Arborway, Bussey Street, and Walter Street. There is no visitor parking inside the Arboretum. The Arnold Arboretum also offers resources for improved accessibility.
The Arboretum is easily reached by public transportation. Take the Orange Line to Forest Hills, cross Washington Street, and take Blackwell Footpath through Bussey Brook Meadow to the South Street Gate.
