This isn’t as weird as it sounds, we promise. Step into local National Historic Site, the Historic Woodlawn Cemetery and Arboretum for themed summer evening strolls, held on the second Thursday of July and August from 6-7:30pm. Explore “The Art of Woodlawn: Egyptian Revival to Modern Architecture” on July 12 and “The Story of our Industrial Pioneers” on August 9. Walk throughout the 160 acre campus of scenic and rolling hills to tour the grounds and learn about history, art, and nature. If evening strolls aren’t your thing, consider attending a Birds of Woodlawn walk on Fridays from 8:30-10:30am to learn about some of the 200 species of the area’s winged friends. On Wednesdays at 9am through October 31st, the Woodlawn Walkers take a power stroll on a two mile path around the property. All events are free.
