During the event, atendees will  learn the history of the day and learn more about the arboretum as they identify  bird species, trees and horticultural specimens that populate the site. Atendees are encouraged to bring binoculars. Tickets are $8 per person or $5 for members. They can be purchased at the door, on the website, or by calling (215) 228-8200.
