Do you love trees and love to run? Then lace up your sneakers and come to Klehm on Arbor Day for the 4th running of the ARBOR DASH, a 5K family fun run through the woods and gardens of our 155-acre property. Get your exercise and help support Klehm Arboretum at the same time. This (unofficially) timed event is open to all ages. Participants will receive an Arbor Dash T-shirt and a tree seedling, while supplies last. Register early!
Free admission for spectators.
Your registration fee will help Klehm continue to fulfill our mission to maintain a living museum for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of all people.
