On this special day, Chanhassen/Carver County residents will be admitted free of charge to the Arboretum, 8 am - 8 pm, (upon showing proof of residency at the gatehouse).

Arboretum Director Ed Schneider will join Mayor Laufenburger and county officials at a public welcoming ceremony, with complimentary refreshments, at 10 a.m. in the Oswald Visitor Center. Immediately following, free gift bags will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Spend the day exploring the exciting summer exhibit, "Nature Connects: Art with LEGO Bricks".  Thirteen displays of nature-inspired LEGO scupltures made from 500,000 bricks will be featured among the Arboretum's gardens.  Kids can also visit the LEGO activity area where enthusiasts can create their own works of art.  Pick up a schedule of events at the information desk upon your arrival.
