Do you love trees and love to run? Then lace up your sneakers and come to Klehm on Friday, April 28th, 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.
Stick around after the run for some comradery with your fellow enthusiasts and enjoy the labors of Prairie Street Brewing Company, who will be on site with a variety of adult beverages, soft drinks, and a few snacks. Get your exercise and help support Klehm Arboretum at the same time. It’s a no-brainer! This (unofficially) timed events is open to all ages.
