Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University — guided walk: "Cultivating Wildness Where You Are"

  • Bussey Street Gate, Arnold Arboretum 125 Arborway Boston, MA, 02130 United States (map)

Redirect your commute to the Arnold Arboretum for an exploratory journey into what wildness is, what it could be, and how it might be recovered in our daily lives. No matter if you live in the city or farther afield, exposure to natural elements and observation of other-than-human creatures can refresh your mind and fuel your soul. Gavin Van Horn will lead this landscape amble, interjecting readings and thoughts for finding wildness within and beyond self. Dress according to the weather and plan to walk approximately one mile, on and off trail, up and down steep terrain. Visit his website at
