Join us on September 12, 2015 at the Morton Arboretum for some extra special hiking with our fur friends!
On September 12, 2015 enjoy a "paw"fect day out with your pup as you meander down the Arboretum's 16 miles of hiking trails. Shop from local businesses and organizations in the pet expo, test out the agility course, and join us for guided hikes. Meet dogs available for adoption and inquire about volunteering with local pet shelters. Sign your pooch up for some doggy games, including the crowd-favorite peanut butter licking contest! Don't forget to pick up your free pet bandana at The Morton Arboretum booth at the vendor expo.
