Good news from The Morton Arboretum! They are reopening to members on June 1, 2020 and planning on opening to nonmembers starting on June 15. Also, the trolls are staying longer! Troll Hunt will continue through early 2021. So if you didn’t get a chance to see these massive and impressive sculptures, there’s still time.
Additional safety procedures will be in place to pace entry to the Arboretum site and enforce social distancing requirements. Members must make advance reservations online for timed-entry passes.
Buildings, indoor restrooms, and the Children’s Garden and Maze Garden will remain closed until further notice. “The Arboretum will continue to monitor and evaluate the ongoing health situation, and may make adjustments to the target reopening date if needed,” said Gerard T. Donnelly, PhD, president and CEO.
The Arboretum’s special events and educational programs originally scheduled for June have been canceled or transitioned to an online format.
The newest outdoor art installation that we announced in our summer preview article has been rescheduled to open April 9, 2021.
