The Arboretum is always free to visit, but come for a special program just for Free Friday participants all about water in our ecosystem. We will learn about how watersheds work, discover sneaky pollution sources, and see some ways we can help protect our ecosystem. We'll set you off to take a nature walk of our restored riparian area, too! This program will feature a fun interactive enviroscape demonstration thanks to a grant from the Shenandoah Pure Water Forum.
The smaller Arboretum lots are likely to be full. Unless you need wheelchair-accessible parking, please park in the R-5 lot on University Blvd. across from the Atlantic Union Bank Center. Enter the Arboretum on the new sidewalk at the welcome banner. When you reach the pond parking lot, turn left and enter the woods on the wide gray path--the pavilion is just beyond.
