Rooted Wisdom: Nature's Role in the Underground Railroad Walk

Explore Adkins Arboretum with a docent guide to understand how self-liberators used the natural landscape to forge a path for freedom. Their methods for navigating, concealing themselves, finding food, and evading capture reflect a deep connection to, and understanding of, the natural landscape. Throughout the walk, we'll explore how nature both helped and hindered the journey.

The tour is $10 per person and is led by a docent naturalist. For more information, contact Assistant Director Jenny Houghton at 410-634-2847, ext. 230 or
