Opening Day of Sit A Spell at Tyler Arboretum




Sat, May 26 - Sun Oct 28
SIT A SPELL: Seats That Tell A Tale
Opening Day!


 This summer, Tyler hosts an exciting and unique exhibition entitled SIT A SPELL: Seats That Tell a Tale. Inspired by nature, more than 30 talented artisans have designed outdoor seating of all kinds meant to entice visitors to come out and enjoy their natural surroundings. Truly an artistic community collaboration, these  chairs, benches, rockers and seats in various forms take shape in anything from rustic to whimsical configurations and encourage young and young-at-heart to relax and SIT A SPELL. Two categories of seats, one for adults and one for children invite participation and imagination in every way.  The exhibition is on display from May 26 through October 28.

Families and children will want to take part in fun-filled events this summer centered around storybooks and favorite fairy tale characters.  Totally Terrific Treehouses, a Tyler favorite, are back and better than ever giving visitors a birds-eye view of the natural habitat. The Butterfly House (opening June 30) once again coaxes visitors to get up close and personal with native pollinators from caterpillar and chrysalis to beautiful butterfly.
