What

The Red Barn, a waterside campfire and sunset views will be the backdrop for this gentle flow yoga retreat with a Sage Yoga instructor. Immerse your senses and move with your breath as the sun dips to reveal the night sky and we make space to journal, draw, write or simply be. Practice will be followed with snacks and conversation.

This program takes place at The Arboretum's Red Barn Area on Davis Drive, just west of State Route 13.  Please note that our main grounds close at 8pm. Park in the Red Barn Area parking lot and follow the boardwalk back to The Red Barn.  For directions, call (740) 323-2355.

What

It is true – fish really do grow on trees! Learn about the links between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems through the exploration of native Ohio fishes and their habitats. Participants will wade in a stream to see where fish live, collect and identify macroinvertebrates (fish food), and capture and observe fish species commonly found in central Ohio. Waders will be available, but participants are welcome to use their own tennis shoes or closed-toe sandals.
