The Arboretum is offering a unique opportunity to tour the grounds with our horticulturist this season.

There are 5 GETs scheduled for 2022. Learn about new plants, design plans, and future projects during a relaxed stroll through the Arboretum. Attend all 5 to see how the gardens change through the year!

Tours are hosted out of the Krumm Center garage.
Registration is required—Please call (641) 791-3021.
Tours begin at 11:00 AM. These are rain or shine events.
Morning snacks will be provided. The use of a reusable water bottle is encouraged.

A $5 registration fee secures your spot on the tour, but adding a donation keeps the Arboretum growing!
