Geocaching is just one of the Arboretum’s Books and Boots events. There will also be winter bird bingo, readings by local authors and a presentation on floral design for the winter garden. Why this weekend’s focus on nature and reading? It’s the Arboretum’s 25th anniversary season, a chance to celebrate the organization’s contributions to the natural and literary world. So bring your kids and your sleuthing skills and discover all that the Arboretum has to offer.
