The UA Arboretum will host the second annual ArBOOretum from 2 -5 pm October 27th. This year’s theme is the biological diversity of Alabama. Trick or treaters will learn about spiders, walk with experts, and collect candy on our spooky trails. Extraction of chemicals from native plants will be featured at the pavilion laboratory. Other activities include: nocturnal animal sounds (played through a computer), microscopes with water samples, and leaf collections/imprints. Visitors are asked to park at the running park/former golf course parking lot where they can walk the trail or ride a shuttle van to the Arboretum pavilion.
