Morris Arboretum’s Nature Play, a new outdoor event series, continues on Saturday, June 2, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. These sessions of unstructured time use what’s available in the outdoors for fun; learning to love nature and loving to learn naturally.  This month, kids are invited to climb on fallen tree trunks and jump from stump to stump.

Nature Play will be held the first Saturday of each month through October, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., at a different location of the garden each session. Visitors may stop by anytime.  The June event will take place beyond the end of the Oak Allée, past Three Tubes sculpture. These events are free with regular garden admission.  For more information, visit
