Due to current health restrictions,
Hayes Arboretum cannot host in-person summer courses. Instead, we are offering Explorer Packets all June and July for FREE!
Please register your child's packet at least a week in advance so that our summer staff has ample time to put the kit together.
All Explorer Kits include:
crafts that match the theme of the packet
story time videos
In addition, each Saturday anytime from 9-5pm, there will be a matching themed interpretive hike on the West Side (801 Elks Road). Hikes are self-led and family-friendly.
Each Explorer Packet will have a page on our website where videos and hike information for the week can be found. The web pages will open for each course during its scheduled week and can be found under the "Events & Resources" dropdown at the top of the website.
Explorer Packets will be available for pick-up during business hours (Tuesday-Saturday, 9-5pm) during their active week. There will be a labeled tote by the front door of the Nature Center.
