Description: Children are invited to spend unhurried hours exploring the natural world in a fun and safe environment. The outdoor classroom includes areas for art, music and movement, climbing and crawling, building, and playing. Additionally, the Bartlett features the best of what Connecticut's native landscape has to offer including wetlands and boardwalks, woodland walking trails, varied wildlife, and native habitats. February 6-December 31, 2012.

Venue Description: Spanning 91 acres, The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is a living museum of towering trees, rare plants, charming gardens, and varied natural habitats and landscapes traversed by hiking and walking trails. It offers year-round educational programs for all ages, an extensive horticultural library, an herbarium with specimens dating back to the 1800s, a summer plant clinic, and seasonal events and family festivals.

Bartlett Visitor Center, once the home of noted dendrologist Dr. Francis A. Bartlett, houses a horticulture resource library, a small gallery that features a variety of art exhibits, and a plant clinic open during the growing season. Professionals in various botany and horticulture fields provide adult lectures and tours of the gardens. There are also educational opportunities for preschool and elementary-aged children, along with numerous weekend family programs. Educational guided walking tours include a Nature Walk series, Rare Tree tour, and Gardens In Bloom.

The Arboretum's original purpose when used as the headquarters of the Bartlett Tree Company in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was to perform cutting-edge research. Since 2006, the Bartlett Arboretum has revitalized research as a part of its daily activities, and staff members at the Bartlett have published several scientific papers.
