Discover the resources that can bring trees to life in your classroom with a visit to The Morton Arboretum this summer.
Teacher Tuesdays are back this summer, June 1 through September 28, providing free admission to current educators to explore the Arboretum to learn about its many educational resources. Classroom teachers, homeschool teachers, and pre-service student teachers from preschool through college qualify for the program. Free Teacher Tuesday passes must be obtained in advance by filling out the interest form the week prior to the desired Teacher Tuesday. The interest form opens each Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. and closes at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, unless capacity has been reached. Pass availability is on a first-come, first-served basis and capacity may vary each week. Tickets are not available at the gatehouse.
To obtain a Teacher Teacher pass, complete the interest form the Wednesday before your desired Teacher Tuesday visit. (The interest form will close once capacity is reached, or at 4:00 p.m. on Fridays.) Registrants will receive an email confirmation indicating if space is available on the upcoming Teacher Tuesday. Teacher Tuesday complimentary admission tickets will be sent by email on Monday. Teachers may arrive any time during their scheduled Tuesday. Please note that the completion of the interest form does not guarantee the availability of passes.
When completing the interest form, teachers must include their school or district email address(es) as verification of their teaching status. Teachers without a district or school email (e.g. homeschool teachers), must complete the form then email Megan Kuhl-Horbin (email@example.com) with their teaching status information.
Please note: Free admission is valid for current teachers only, not for additional guests or children. Additional guests or children must obtain timed-entry tickets online in advance of their visit. Tickets are not available at the gatehouse. Get tickets here.
