Tyler Arboretum is a beautiful location for photography. Visitors are encouraged to take photos at the Arboretum to capture beautiful scenery, colorful flowers, or priceless memories. With 650 acres of butterfly-filled gardens, open meadows, towering trees, and centuries-old structures, you are sure to find the perfect place to capture many incredible images. Photographs for personal use may be taken anywhere in the Arboretum. Our guided Photo Forays, which are free with admission, provide wonderful opportunities to join fellow enthusiasts and discover image opportunities that are not readily apparent(see Calendar and/or Education Programs for Photo Foray schedule).
Our plants and the insects, birds and animals on our property are precious to us – please do not walk into beds or otherwise damage plants or wildlife. Due to space limitations, tripod or monopod use is limited in the Butterfly House. Be respectful of other visitors by not blocking pathways or visitor access to any area of the Arboretum.
We welcome individual, family, engagement and senior class portraits; and other photography or portraiture intended for personal use only (i.e., not for commercial use). Regular Garden admission applies for all individuals.
