Christmas Sale -find the spirit at the Arbo
by Scott Pemberton

Starting on Saturday, November 29, at the Gatehouse,
on weekdays, from 9 am to 4 pm and on weekends, from 8 am to 5 pm

It’s important to remember that the Holiday season isn’t about shopping stress but about giving back and showing appreciation for those we care about. The Morgan Arboretum Christmas sale can help you do just that. Groomed Christmas trees and large naturally grown Christmas trees will be on sale along with holiday wreaths and bundles of do-it-yourself decorative boughs, see the price list. As well as being your one-stop-shop for decorations the Arboretum offers some great gift ideas. Our annual Photo calendar is back and it’s filled tighter than a stuffed Christmas stocking with photos taken at the Arboretum, by Friends of the Arboretum. Arboretum gift cards are also on sale for loved ones who are not near us this holiday season.

A fantastic gift deserving of anyone, naughty or nice, is an Arboretum Gift Membership. Your loved one can take advantage of the Arboretum’s fresh air, beautiful wildlife and scenery, spa-like relaxation and help burn off those Christmas cookie calories by taking advantage of our walking, running, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. This is truly a gift that keeps on giving. This winter give meaningful gifts while supporting the conservation and protection of your local nature reserve.



Note that the Arboretum will be closed on December 25 and January 1, allowing everyone to participate in the end of year celebrations.
