First Day of Spring! (Updated March 20) – The delightful promise of spring has arrived, and with it comes the chance to get out in nature, explore, and see the Arboretum literally come to life a little more each day. 32,000 early spring bulbs were planted in large groupings last fall for a showier spring than ever before. Snowdrops (pictured) have already been seen poking their heads through the snow, with Dwarf Irises, Scilla, Trillium and Crocus not far behind. Photo by Christopher Hall.

Final weeks! Take advantage of the unusual weather and temps to see the evening exhibit "Bruce Munro: Winter Light at the Arboretum". Tickets available here.

Daytime building hours are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sundays. Buildings are open on Thursday through Sunday evenings for the winter exhibit.
