With cell phone in hand, visitors to Laurelwood Arboretum can learn about the history and plantings of this unique natural park. Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum now offers a self-paced cell phone tour to guide people from the Knippenberg Center fir Education along many of the arboretum’s scenic paths, through natural and designed spaces, and back to the center. At each of the 19 tour stops they can hear details of the history and horticulture of this special place.

The cell phone tour takes about one hour to complete, depending on the visitor’s walking pace and interests. A brochure with instructions on how to access the tour can be found at the Notice Board adjacent to the Pines Lake Drive parking area. The full script of the cell phone tour is also posted on the website www.laurelwoodarboretum.org. along with instructions on how to access the tour by phone.

The Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum cell phone tour was made possible by a generous donation from the Ira A. Roschelle, MD Family Foundation.
