Tour the 140 acres of naturally planted woodlands and view an estimated 4 million native trees in the 300 acre Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.
We will be walking on mulched pathways as we see rare Leatherwoods, 60’ tall Basswood trees, Hop Hornbeam, Coffee Trees, Dogwood, Hickories, Bladdernut, and thousands of Pawpaw Trees. Kansas has about 85 species of native trees and half of these species grow naturally at the Overland Park Arboretum woodlands.
