National Arboretum Tram Tour
Take a tram tour of the highlights of the 446 acres of the U.S. National Arboretum's gardens, collections, and natural areas. During the 35-minute ride, you will hear an informative narrative about the Arboretum, its history, mission, and research, and the display gardens and collections. The arboretum will be open until 5:00 p.m., which allows time after our tour for Club members to stay on arboretum grounds to continue exploring, enjoy a picnic, and/or play PokemonGO. The tram will run rain or shine. The top is covered, but the sides are nof, so dress appropriately for the weather. Family event. Members only plus up to 3 guests each. Limited to 46 + 2 wheelchairs. $5 pp.
