Matthaei Botanical Gardens’ Winter Walks are held most Wednesdays and Sundays through April. These free, guided walks will take place inside the Conservatory (though if the weather is particularly wonderful, we may move outside – watch this page for updates). MBG Winter Walks are designed for all ages to inspire curiosity and learning from each other through activities that model curiosity and honor nature. If we have a sizeable mixed-age group, we may separate into two sets to offer the same content at different levels of engagement.

Wednesday walks begin at 5:30 pm. Sunday walks begin at 1:00 pm. We recommend gathering inside the lobby of Matthaei Botanical Gardens about 10 minutes before the start.
