The Arboretum Grounds are open daily from 7AM to 7PM; Wisner House Gallery is open this Saturday from 10AM to 2PM and Sunday from 10AM to 4PM. Please note that masks are required when entering any RRA building and when social distancing requirements cannot be practiced.
The arboretum offers many programs for children ages 3 and up. Each takes advantage of our unique natural setting, whether it's examining animal adaptations in the woodland forest, facilitating seed germination in the Louise B. Roehm Greenhouse, or taking part in a physical activity on the Great Lawn. The Discovery Saturdays program is the perfect way for a busy family to escape a hectic weekday schedule and reconnect with each other and nature through hands-on learning.
