Experience the wonders and seasonal beauty of Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden at Winter Woods Walk every Saturday in February. Enjoy the glistening snow-covered evergreens, the textured barks of deciduous trees and the panoramic winter views from the Look-out Tower. Take a self-guided tour showcasing the many rare species of spruce, fir and pine as you leisurely stroll the 1.8-mile cleared paved path through the heart of the arboretum or participate in the Winter Scavenger Hunt and adventure into the outback on one of the many chipped trails for a chance encounter with the abundant winter wildlife. Warm up in the Visitors Centers Lobby Lodge with complimentary hot beverages and snacks and view the gallery art exhibit or see whats new in the Flowering Magnolia Gift Shop. Admission is free for the entire family to Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Gardens Winter Woods Walks, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on February 4, 11, 18, and 25.
