Testimonials

"The Arboretum is a wonderful venue, year-round, to host a family reunion. There's always something to see!  The tram accommodates all ages and physical conditions and is a great way to tour and see the highlights of the beautiful grounds and exhibits and the facilities are very accommodating for a private lunch or dinner.  And the food is great!" - Jeannine Rivet

Motivate employees with a team-building event!

The Amazing Arboretum Race will begin with a clue for your first destination – once you find the bin inside, you will find an activity the team needs to complete before getting their clue to the next location.  There are 10 locations to complete before you are finished.  The first team back with all activities completed wins bragging rights and 2 VIP Arboretum Tickets per team member!  Plan for at least 1.5 hours – only the quickest teams will finish in that time – we suggest planning for 2 hours and/or having a designated stop time and whoever comes back completing the most activities.  If due to weather we need to move you indoors it should only take 30-60 minutes.Cost is $200 (all supplies are included).
