Spring is on the way. And while you’re waiting for school to start up again, check out our spring nature activities. You can do these at home, on the trails at Matthaei or Nichols Arboretum, or on a walk in a local park or nature area.
Matthaei-Nichols closed and all events and programming canceled through April 21
Matthaei Botanical Gardens is closed through April 21. This includes the Matthaei buildings, conservatory, gardens, and gift shop. The trails at both Matthaei and Nichols will continue to be open from sunrise to sunset, and we will make parking at Matthaei free during this period. When visiting the Arb or the Gardens, please observe the recommended distancing of 6 ft for your safety and that of other visitors. Read Univ Michigan updates here
