Areas of Bernheim Temporarily Closed

November 9, 2013 - November 17, 2013

Please note that during November 9 – 17, selected Bernheim trails will be closed for wildlife management. The arboretum will remain open for your enjoyment, and all closed areas will be clearly marked for your safety. We take this time to ensure proper ecological balance at Bernheim. We regret any inconvenience; however, many adventures still await you. Hiking, family picnics, biking, dog walking, nature photography and more are to be enjoyed in the beauty of nature in the arboretum. Late fall is a wonderful time to explore Bernheim’s arboretum, from observing nature’s response to the season to beginning your holiday shopping for your nature loving friends at our Visitor Center. Weekend admission during this period is free.
