January marks the beginning of maple sugaring season. Join Director of Children's Education Jackie Kondel as she taps the Arboretum's maple trees in preparation for this season's sap flow.  Not only will families learn the hows and whys behind tapping trees, but will also get first-hand experience actually helping us do it!  Registration is required.

Backyard Birding for Families (for families with children ages 5 and up)

This program is all about birds...not Angry Birds but hungry birds!  Food is scarce in the wintertime and putting up birdfeeders not only helps birds but can provide enjoyment for your family as well.  In addition to making a simple birdfeeder that your family can take home, we will also learn to identify the common and not so common birds that may visit your feeder!  Registration is required.

Please note that the cost is $25 per family for Non-members.
