Tyler Arboretum is home to 650 acres of horticultural collections, trees, rare plants, and 20 miles of nature trails that play host to a wide range of seasonal activities and events. Wander the four-ring labyrinth of the Meadow Maze, peppered with Discovery Station plaques that convey facts about the food chain, life cycles, and the preferred football chants of meadow flora and fauna. In snowy conditions, the gardens’ seven nature trails welcome snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and hikers can challenge the red trail’s intense elevations or enjoy views of woods and stream on the orange trail year-round. The Pinetum’s protected conference of pines, spruces, and firs stand proudly on the open hills like the most experiential of TV weathermen, and staring in January the botanical grounds see blooms of witch hazel, early bulbs, and magnolias.

Year-round tours convene at the Visitor Center before guides lead age-specific groups on searches for birds or wildflowers, or conduct full-moon night hikes to teach nature enthusiasts to photograph insects and fungi. Through November 27, Totally Terrific Treehouses plants seven unique structures at overlooks throughout the arboretum. Crafted by local artisans, each treehouse is built to avoid harm to its local trees using constructive methods such as suspension and emotional-sensitivity training. All-ages visitors can also explore the Imagination Station’s wooden trunk tunnel or the Outlook’s giant, cantilevered leaf design, as all exhibits and most walks are included with arboretum admission.

On their way out of the outdoor paradise, customers are beckoned to the Visitor Center gift shop to peruse nature-inspired jewelry handmade by local artisans ($8+), or binoculars ($7) and build-a-birdhouse kits ($9) to entertain child birders or housecats disguised as child birders. The Gift Shop also proffers hand-turned wooden bowls made from trees that have fallen on the Arboretum’s grounds ($150+).

Tyler Arboretum

Visitors could explore Tyler Arboretum for hours and still not see everything it has to offer. For one thing, it's huge—the arboretum covers 650 acres of woodlands and gardens crisscrossed with 17 miles of hiking trails. For another, it's constantly hosting educational programs and special events. Through September 30th, 2016, guests can see Tyler's visiting goats, part of a sustainable meadow-management initiative. And then there's the seasonal variation: the exhibits here—not to mention the flora and fauna—change by the month, week, and day. While Tyler Arboretum is open year-round, some of the most alluring times to visit are in the summer—when the vibrant seasonal flowers are in full bloom—and in fall, when the autumn foliage transforms into fiery red, orange, and yellow hues.

Some of the arboretum's most colorful exhibits include a small pond, a 1,400-square-foot butterfly house, and seven interactive tree houses (open April–November) scattered across the property. Tyler Arboretum is open year-round, but some of the best times to visit are in spring and summer, when flowers are in bloom and there are no snowmen around demanding top hats and scarves.
