It’s a dog’s life

After enjoying a treat in the Visitor’s Center,
Lewis prepares to lead his owner on a
sunny February walk.

By now, you know that the Arboretum is a great destination for learning about native plants and land stewardship, shopping for plants, books, and unique gifts, engaging in outdoor play, viewing art exhibits, visiting with friendly goats, walking in the woods, and attending events that celebrate the seasons. But do you know that it’s also a wonderful place to walk your dog?

Mike and Ruth Parks of Ridgely walk their dog,
Dodger, almost daily at the Arboretum
(and sometimes twice a day).
Leashed dogs are always welcome! Stop by the Visitor’s Center for a map of the Arboretum’s paths and a biscuit for your four-legged friend, and set off on a grand adventure. With five miles of paths to explore, your dog will never want the visit to end.

When you return to the Visitor’s Center, be sure to check out the new Adkins Arboretum dog bandannas in the gift shop. Attire your pooch in style while showing your support for the Arboretum.

This week promises several days of gorgeous sunny weather. Come on out, bring your favorite friend, and discover why it’s a dog’s life at Adkins Arboretum!
