Slow down and smell the flowers! Spend an afternoon outside taking a walk at a local arboretum.  Best of all, many gardens have family programs, including Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, which hosts drop in activities every Saturday from 9-1pm.  For more gardens and nature centers, check out our website!
