Bundle up and join us in celebrating nature and the winter season with some simple old-fashioned fun that will get you in the true spirit of the holiday season. Have a family photo taken in our beautiful antique sleigh (perfect for your holiday card!). Enjoy creating unique crafts, including natural ornaments using materials gathered at Tyler. The kids will love our Reindeer Scavenger Hunt and visiting our discovery stations to learn what the animals, birds, and plants are doing to survive the cold. Historic Lachford Hall will be decorated for the holidays and open for tours. Then take a festive hayride through the Arboretum meadows and warm up afterwards with hot beverages and holiday cookies. A cheerful bonfire will keep you warm throughout the event. While you are here, be sure to take advantage of the annual Country Gardeners Greens Sale to get some shopping done. Rain or shine.
