Come, walk slowly and gently. / Absorb the silence and peace of a moonlit night / deep in the winter’s woods. / Stand and be warmed by a fire / that reminds us of the spring that is soon to come. / Let your spirit wander out into the night / to touch all of the life that surrounds us.
Because this is an after-hours program, and the Klehm Arboretum offices will be closed, pre-registration and pre-payment is REQUIRED. Reserve a spot early as these walks tend to fill up quickly.
Participants will be given jar candles to help light a pathway into the night. Wear warm clothing and footwear suitable for walking unpaved forest trails. Be sure to arrive a few minutes early as the entry gates will close at 6:00 PM sharp!
In the unlikely event of a debilitating winter storm, check our website for possible cancellation, in which case full refunds will be given.
