Draves Arboretum


Naturalist Mark Carra will lead a nature exploration from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 17 at Drave’s Arboretum, 1821 Sharrick Rd., Darien.

The event will start in the Richard’s Complex with a presentation by Curator Tom Draves.

Then the group will head outside to explore. While the Arboretum is primarily an educational institution of planted woody species, it is also a biodiverse habitat for wildlife. Walk with Mark and learn about ecological succession, the mycorrhizal web, symbiotic relationships in nature and more.

This walk will include inclines and uneven terrain; come prepared with proper footwear and a walking stick, if needed. Please bring a mask for the indoor presentation and practice social distancing on the walk.

The cost is $22 for members of Drave’s Arboretum and $25 non-members.

Attendees may stay after the program and explore the Arboretum for the remainder of the day.
