Open House at The Morton Arboretum

Sunday, June 28th, is the Arboretum's Open House. This is a time when we open up our doors/labs/offices from noon until 4:00 p.m to the world! During this event, we invite you to visit the Sterling Morton Library and learn more about what we do. On the event schedule there is a wide variety of activities, but of special note (and because this is the Sterling Morton Library blog) are the activities hosted by the Library. Open house attendees in the Library will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet Jim Ballowe, author of the recently published biography – A Man of Salt and Trees : the life of Joy Morton
  • Discover wood engraving techniques with artist, Arlene Widrevitz
  • View examples of wood engraved illustrations in our collections
  • Preview our new exhibit, Darwin's Flowers: Unlocking Natural Selection
  • Listen to Rabbit Ears, flute and guitar duo, in the May T. Watts Reading Garden
  • Meet with Library staff to learn more about our collections
  • View a selection of unusual items from our special collections that are seldom on display

    There will be lots of opportunities to meet Library staff and gain an exclusive perspective on our work and passion. For complete details about the event and registration information, please see:

    Hope to see you on Sunday!
