Join our group from Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden as we discover the trolls at The Morton Arboretum on Saturday, October 5th! We will be taking a charter bus trip from Rockford to tour the exhibition TROLL HUNT by Thomas Dambo at The Morton Arboretum, and will be spending a few hours afterward for lunch and leisurely exploration before heading back to Klehm. The Morton Arboretum is currently home to six colossal trolls that have been crafted from reclaimed wood by Danish artist Thomas Dambo, and these trolls share the Arboretum’s desire to care for the trees and serve as protectors of the environment. The tour itself will be conducted from the charter bus with a guide, and is a “hop on, hop off” style tour in which visitors will have the opportunity to stop and walk to meet four trolls up close (up to ½ mile walk at each troll). Join us as we explore the TROLL HUNT to learn more about these fascinating new residents of The Morton Arboretum.
