Enjoy your Sunday with a walk that will encourage you to open your mind and engage your senses. Mindfulness in the Garden is a different type of walk where we practice awareness, and try to spot the not so obvious wildlife in the Wilbur D. May Arboretum.  Whether it is a Spotted Towhee scratching through the leaves or a young frog hiding between two stones, the biggest little discoveries await!
