We are honoring our community’s innovative educators who are working hard across in-person and virtual mediums to educate students during the pandemic with two free tickets to visit the Arboretum.
"We want to say 'thank you’ by opening up the Arboretum to the creative and hard-working teachers who have continued to educate our children during these unprecedented circumstances,” said Arboretum Director Peter Moe. “We invite our Minnesota educators to enjoy early spring at the Arboretum by exploring miles of hiking trails, fine art in the Harrison Sculpture Garden and Reedy Gallery, and our early spring bulb display. We hope this provides a small opportunity for them to unwind and recharge.”
All teachers, teacher aids, as well as those working within public or private school systems in Minnesota (pre-k through university settings) can make free reservations to visit the Arboretum by calling 612-624-2200, and reserve a specific one-time visit from March 1-31. They’ll be emailed a ticket to show at the gatehouse, along with their employee ID.
