Solstice at the Arboretum -  Friday, June 22, 2018

Celebrate the Summer Solstice at one of the greatest reservations of global trees in southern California. The mission of the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden is the cultivation of our natural, horticultural, and historic resources for learning, enjoyment, and inspiration. The Garden strives to reflect southern California’s distinct climate, community, and openness to new ideas. The Arboretum is a unique 127-acre botanical garden and historical site that includes Native American, Rancho Period, and late 19th century treasures. You will discover plants and trees from all over the world as you wander along paths and learn about California history on your journey through the garden. You will enjoy lunch on your own at the Peacock Café. Also, you will explore the Garden’s Gift Shop, a unique source for an array of peacock-theme merchandise. Almost everyone leaves the Arboretum in love with its beautiful peacocks and peahens. You can take them home, at least an image of the bird on a fan, candle, magnet, or puppet—to name just a few examples of its wonderful collection of peacock-motif merchandise.
