Arboretum Gardens

Join us as we celebrate this natural phenomenon! On Monday, August 21, the first 250 cars will receive a FREE pair of solar eclipse glasses. While the Arboretum does not fall in the path of totality, we will witness a 99 percent eclipse in our area. The transition is expected to occur between 1 and 4 p.m. and the full total eclipse will occur at 2:35 p.m.

Avoid the traffic and crowds and enjoy the Arboretum’s 434 acres of trails and open garden spaces, perfect for viewing this once-in-a-lifetime event.
