Tyke Hikes

Encourage your little one’s curiosity with nature and the outdoors.

Children 18 months to 3 years, with their adult companions, can join a naturalist for a story reading, a simple nature activity or craft, and a stroller-friendly hike on the beautiful Arboretum trails. Enjoy an interesting new nature experience each week with themes such as bunnies, fish, snakes, and wildflowers.
