Let's plan on meeting in front of the gift shop in the main visitor building. I've never been there in the Winter. There is an entrance fee to get in which I think is still $9.00. The Arboretum has a lot of different activities going on until the end of December.
They do have a tripod policy, and there are several different gardens to explore. I am hoping by mid December there will be enough snow on the ground. We can meet afterwards and have lunch at the cafe.
Please email Jennifer at [masked] if you decide you can't make it. I have seen tripods being used outdoors in the warmer months but it might only be restricted to staying on the pathways. If you have further questions on their tripod policy I'd recommend calling the Arboretum.
