Letter from the Director

Dear Friends, 

And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.

-  Rainer Maria Rilke

 As we begin 2022, think of the new year as a blank sheet of paper and in your hand is Crayola’s 152 count box of crayons. Think of the possibilities! Our programming calendar is like a box of crayons, so many to choose from! With a variety of programs for adults, children, and families, I am confident something will pique your interest. Be sure to check out some of our offerings below and start your new year at the Arboretum.

 Until next time,

.
