Content Detail

This unique tram tour will take you on an exhilarating, 1.5-hour journey through Human+Nature—the Arboretum’s inspiring new eight-piece exhibition by South African artist, Daniel Popper. The Human+Nature guided tram tours are offered on select Wednesdays and Sundays through October.

The tour will stop at each of the sculptures for a limited time, allowing passengers some freedom to disembark and walk around, interact with the works, take photos, or just marvel at the unique beauty of each piece and its natural setting.

The walking distance from the tram drop-off point to a given sculpture varies from 0.1 miles to just under 0.5 miles and surfaces are either grass or wood-chipped trails.

Tours leave from the tram circle outside the Visitor Center. Tram tours are wheelchair accessible.
