The Arnold Arboretum offers Winter Wellness Walks on Sunday afternoons, January through March, from 1:00-1:45pm. This activity emphasizes fitness, with a healthy dose of information on seasonal highlights. Winter tours are geared to adults and led by trained Arboretum docents. This activity is free, but registration is requested. Our events, activities, and classes run continuously throughout the year.

Donald Wyman’s work at the Arnold Arboretum focused on the horticultural evaluation of ornamental trees and shrubs, and the practical application of horticultural information through lectures, publications, and public display. His papers reflect his years of dedication to the study and advancement of horticulture within the academic community and in service of the gardening public.

Herman Howard joined the Arnold Arboretum staff in 1929 and, with the exception of 3 years served with the armed forces (1943-1945), spent the next 38 years working as the Arboretum’s unofficial photographer. In his official capacity as Assistant Horticulturist under Donald Wyman and Alfred Fordham, Howard was responsible for checking, mapping and labeling the plants in the living collections.

In July 1970, Howard retired from the Arnold Arboretum to accept the full-time position as Horticulturist at Heritage Plantation in Sandwich, Massachusetts. He retired from Heritage Plantation in 1977.
