Take your family on a stroll through Portland’s museum of trees. During the spring and summer, Hoyt Arboretum is hosting Family Forest Days.
This beautiful nature oasis features 2,300 species of trees and plants from around the world along 12 miles of trails. Hoyt Arboretum is free to visit with lots of great cheap events available each week, including tai chi and preschool walks. You can also hop on the free Washington Park shuttle at the visitor center.
During Family Forest Days, Hoyt Arboretum will have activity tables set up on the trails covering different nature education topics. The activities will rotate each month:
- May: Spring flowers
- June: Pollinators
- July: Nature and art
- August: Bugs
For the July event, you can pre-register to participate nature watercolors. The activity is free. All other activity tables along the trails do not require pre-registration.
Family Forest Days are free to attend. The events are taking place on the third Saturday of each month through August. The only exception is the July 10 event. Stop by from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to participate.
Check in at the Stevens Pavilion at 4000 SW Fairview Blvd. when you arrive. For more information, visit the Hoyt Arboretum website.
