From life-sized tree houses to a really cool Butterfly House (open July and August), nature's secrets unfold in fun and mysterious ways for children of all ages.

The 1,400 sq. ft Butterfly House allows children to peek into the world of caterpillars and butterflies. in all stages of development - illustrating how nature can morph from one thing into something totally different...

Tyler is also a fierce, forward thinking environmental organization. In recent days, one of the hottest local news stories has been about Tyler's  'new kids' on the block...a herd of goats! Dining like royalty, they're also the newest weapon against invasive species of weeds and even poison ivy.

Tyler managers previously used herbicides to control weeds including Japanese honeysuckle, multiflora rose and even poison ivey, but in an effort to return to more natural land management of the Media site, they looked for non-chemical solutions.  The goats are part of a trial run that includes other strategies such as winter and summer mowing and controlled burns. Each will be tested on different plots in the arboretum’s more than 95 acres of meadowland. The most effective tools will be expanded throughout Tyler.  

Everything old is new again...Having a goat herd on the property is nothing new. In the 1880's portions of the land had been actively farmed, and even had goats. 

All kids go a little crazy here..bring yours and  do a little running (or walking!) through the fields and flowers at Tyler...
