Several times a year, The Morton Arboretum hosts Dog Admission Days and Tails on the Trails events. These are the only times that dogs not designated as service dogs are allowed on the grounds of the Arboretum. Service dogs are welcome at no cost daily, and should be identified when entering at the gatehouse.
These special events provide an opportunity to explore the Arboretum’s 16 miles of trails with your favorite canine companion.
Dog and human admission passes must be reserved in advance through the Arboretum’s website and will become available for purchase or reservation close to the date of the event. Admission for dogs is $5 per dog and will be added to the ticketing fees at the time of purchase.
Dog Admission Days
Dog Admission Days offer members and guests the opportunity to visit the Arboretum with their dogs. Vendors and other Pet Expo attractions will not be available on these days.
Tails on the Trails
During Tails on the Trails events, guests can explore a Pet Expo, which features dog-oriented shopping from vendors representing local businesses and organizations, opportunities to adopt dogs, and options to learn about volunteering at local animal shelters.
