Experience the Arboretum like you never have before, at night!

Enjoy the night time sights and sounds and escape outdoors as a family while you learn about Native American tribes that once lived here in eastern Kansas.

Tonight we will learn about the Wichita Nation. Meaning "bear-eyed people" due to the men applying dark tattoos around their eyes, and known for constructing large grass houses, this tribe is indigenous to Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma.

Bring your flashlights and be ready to gaze at the night sky.

No pre-registration is necessary. Fees are included with admission to the Arboretum.

All ages are invited.
