Scott Arboretum offers exciting tours, educational workshops, and seminars throughout the year, and 2019 kicks off with 3 unique and interesting events:

Take a free Guided Winter Highlights Tour on January 17th or 29th from noon to 1pm. 
If you ate too many cookies over the holidays, a brisk lunchtime walk through the Winter Garden is a great way to kick off your 'get ready for bathing suits' regimen!

Beginners and experts alike will enjoy this winter tour led by Arboretum staff. It begins in the Scott Arboretum offices and is free and open to the public. In case of inclement weather, the tour will be canceled. For more information, call the Scott Arboretum offices at 610-328-8025.
