It was inevitable that Adkins Arboretum would go to the dogs. For as long as we can remember, visitors have been permitted to enjoy a walk on the Arboretum grounds with their dog on a leash., Now the Arboretum is competing hard to be the best place to bring your dog. So it was long overdue for the staff to enjoy the fun and bring their own dogs to work. The Arboretum staff has designated Thursdays as “Staff Bring Your Dog to Work Day.” If you visit the Arboretum on a Thursday be prepared to be greeted by friendly canine mixes of all kinds and ages taking over the operations of the Visitor’s Center on Thursday. We are a dog-loving bunch.
