Description: In spring and fall of each year, Mount Pisgah Arboretum offers a free training program for volunteers interested in becoming nature guides for elementary school children in our community. The goal of this program is to make the students’ classroom science education come alive out on the trails and reconnect them to the natural world.
Description: Join us on the newly rebuilt Adkison Bridge as we honor the donors and volunteers who helped with this project! Last summer and fall, community support helped complete the multi-year project to rebuild the Arboretum’s largest footbridge. Thanks to generous financial contributions and a massive amount of donated labor, the newly re-constructed Adkison Bridge was open to the public on October 25. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Description: Join Nature Guides Julia Siporin and Chris Roth for another monthly bird walk intended for people with all levels of birding experience, beginner to advanced. We'll use vocalizations, habitat, and behavior clues for identification of our early spring and year-round residents. Come discover or rediscover the Arboretum’s avian diversity—and be prepared for potentially inclement weather in this slower birding season. Please bring binoculars!
