Evening Event: Holden Arboretum

October 1, 2019

Location: Holden Arbotetum, 9550 Sperry Rd, Kirtland, OH 44094

Please join the HBS Club of Northeastern Ohio for a Sunset Hike at The Holden Arboretum followed by a presentation from President & CEO—Jill Koski.

Holden Arboretum recently merged with the Cleveland Botanical Garden and is now the 12th largest public garden in the country—Jill was named President in November 2017 and came to Cleveland after serving in various roles at Morton Arboretum and Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.

Founded in 1908 by Albert Fairchild Holden in memory of his deceased 12 year old daughter, Holden Arboretum, which now has over 3,600 acres in Lake County, was modeled after the Arnold Arboretum, at a place you may have heard of called Harvard University.

We hope you will agree that there is no more beautiful time of year to see the natural beauty of Northeast Ohio than twilight in early Fall.  If you are unable to join us for the hike, you are welcome to tour Holden’s visitor center prior to Jill’s presentation.

Trees are important to our world — they cool the earth — they provide us with oxygen —they benefit wildlife — they sequester carbon to help fight climate change — they provide a canopy!

Note: Plan to dress casually/comfortably for the evening weather and wear hiking boots — you can change shoes after the hike if you like.
