Nature and the Underground Railroad Walk

This walk views the Arboretum’s native landscapes through a historical lens. The objective is not to recreate the experiences of those who were enslaved and who sought freedom—that is beyond our ability. But we can explore how local habitats, land use, and history came together and helped create this heartbreaking element of our national experience. We are all still part of this story and the ongoing journey of seeking understanding.

The tour is $10 per person and is led by a docent naturalist. For more information, contact Jenny Houghton, Assistant Director, at 410-634-2847, ext. 23 or
