wonder walk graphic all are welcome

Matthaei Botanical Gardens is hosting free guided nature walks on select Wednesdays and Sundays.  These walks are FREE, no registration is required.

MBG Wonder Walks are designed for all ages to inspire curiosity and learning from each other through activities that model curiosity and honor nature. If we have a sizeable mixed-age group, we may separate into two sets to offer the same content at different levels of engagement.

Wednesday walks begin at 5:30 pm.  Sunday walks begin at 1:00 pm. We recommend gathering inside the lobby of Matthaei Botanical Gardens about 10 minutes before the start.

Cancelations will be posted on this page.

March: Spring Rejuvenation –  this time of year is all about preparation for spring. Environmental changes are occurring: it's getting warmer, days are getting longer, and water is thawing. The combination of these events means that migrating animals are also returning, especially migrating waterfowl. At the same time, we have the re-emergence of plants and can see the early stages of growth.
