Summer Solstice Hike

Celebrate the first day of summer with a guided hike along the Arboretum’s trails.

Content Detail

Walk The Morton Arboretum’s trails on the longest day of the year. Visit natural areas, take in spectacular trees, and fill your lungs with fresh air as you explore the many ways we are connected to nature and its cycles.

During this guided hike, you will

  • hear solstice stories,
  • learn how daylight and darkness are important to nature’s cycles,
  • identify plants, birds, and other wildlife along the trails, and
  • consider our human role as being a part of nature rather than apart from it.
