Release yourself to the forest on this,

the longest and darkest night of the year.

There will be no sunlight to guide your journey.

There will be no moonlight to show you the way.

But you will have your senses,

the light of your spirit,

and if you wish a small jar candle to guide you.

Let the night envelop you

and teach you

that you can be the light to dispel the darkness.


Come out to Klehm for a guided walk through the woods that focuses on breathing, using your senses, meditation, and reflection. Wear footwear suitable for trail walking in the woods, and dress appropriately for whatever the weather might bring. You are welcome to bring trekking poles if you wish. Because this is an after-hours program and the arboretum will be closed to the general public, please plan to arrive a few minutes early as the gates will close promptly at 5:30 PM. Group size will be limited, so register early to be sure to secure a spot!


Please note that this walk will take place in the dark with small jar lights to guide your way.


In the event of severe weather, check our website and Facebook for cancellation information. You will be notified of any changes via email and/or phone.


Pre-registration is required as space is limited.
