Fun Green Family Trip: Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure

Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure is a green minded, nature charged, fun trip that’s perfect for the entire family.

What is Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure?:

This fun family adventure is full of tree sights, tree sounds, and tree knowledge. It’s an action packed tree event. For example, you can climb a 50 foot tree house and once at the top hang out in the Nature Explore Club where “nature challenges” await for you to solve. From camouflage insects to owl pellets, the cabin showcases the awesome diversity of nature.

The special summer exhibit going on right now through the end of October is Artisan Woods, a cool walk in the woods among nature inspired works of art created by regional artists. Works of art include an amazing 60 ft woven wood tunnel, a birds eye view on life in a human sized nest, and more.

You can discover nature’s wonders on a one-hour journey through woodland trails across the 260-acre Arbor Day Farm. A Discovery Ride tractor fueled on Soy Biodiesel travels along as an expert guides share stories of Morton’s family and tree planting on the prairie. The ride goes through Preservation Orchard as well as a commercial orchard and vineyards. You’ll see plenty of natural habitat from flower gardens to apple trees, to wildlife and you’ll explore conservation and forestry demonstrations.

There’s tons more to see and do too; wine tasting for the adults, hiking on the tree house trail, a movie all about trees, the arbor day tree greenhouse, and so much more.
