The Crimson Classic cross country meet is scheduled for Friday, October 16. Pets will not be allowed through the front gate this week due to the issues with owners failing to clean up after them. On Friday, access through the front gate will be limited to the cross country meet. Arboretum visitors will need to enter through the back gate on Pelham Heights Road. Leashed pets are welcome at the Arboretum; please clean up after them.

Field trips and tours

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide organized field trips and guided tours at this time due to limited resources. Teachers and groups are required to make a reservation request for our facilities but will need to provide their own program. We are working to reorganize our program and train volunteers and hope to bring back field trips and tours in the near future.
