#86 – Visit a local Arboretum

We’ve been a family of three for two weeks now, and while Adam is back at work, I’m still at the point where going out and doing anything seems a little overwhelming, so we’re still a couple weeks away from knocking anything else off the list.  I did realize I didn’t post this item we knocked off way back over the Thanksgiving weekend when we visited the Humber Arboretum.

We went to the Arboretum on a perfect Fall morning.  My dad, who is an incredibly talented landscape designer (he’d never brag about how good he is, so I pick up the slack), worked here in the early 80s, just after it opened.  He was in charge of day to day operations which included private fundraising, nature interpretation, educational links with the landscape program at Humber College and running field classes for gardening enthusiasts.  It was pretty neat to wander around the grounds, knowing my dad was so involved at one time.
