Story Time

The Wilbur D. May Arboretum and Botanical Garden is happy to announce one of our newest programs, Virtual Story Time! Story Time videos will be posted once a week and will have a craft kids can do at home to accompany each story. Our volunteers and Arboretum Educator will read a new story each week that reflects the season and time of year. Visit the arboretum after each Story Time video to explore in the gardens and see some of the things you learned about firsthand!
