As part of the Highland Street Foundation's Free Fun Fridays! program, enjoy free activities at the Arnold Arboretum like:
- Arborist Station: Meet an Arboretum arborist and see them in action. Try on arborist protective gear and get up close and personal with the special tools used by arborists.
- Watercolor Station: Become inspired by the beauty of the Arboretum and use that inspiration while creating a watercolor masterpiece.
- Storyboard Walk: Read a book while exploring the Arboretum.
- The Building Lab: Create your own fort under the lindens. Use branches pruned from trees in the Arboretum, bamboo, and other found objects to construct a one-of-a-kind fort.
Free Fun Fridays! invites Massachusetts residents and tourists to visit designated cultural attractions on Fridays this summer with free admission and free activities. No registration or tickets required. Visit and enjoy!
